The enduring spirit of another time...
MacKinlays Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky
Analysis of the original Mackinlay's malt revealed the taste profile of the whisky. The team also established the strength of the whisky at 47.3% alc/vol, the fact that Orkney peat was used in the malting, and that the spirit had been matured in American white oak sherry casks.
Inspired by this analysis, efforts to re-create the whisky begun. Malts from Glen Mhor and Dalmore distilleries were combined with others from Speyside and beyond. The result is a malt light honey in colour with an aroma that is soft, elegant and refined, and a taste that is both harmonious and exhilarating. This is a meticulous re-creation. It is the enduring spirit of another time.
At Alana, we have secured 15 of these high-end bottles from this first re-creation to release. This is strictly while stocks last. This isn't just another bottle of whisky, this is a piece of history.
The reviews of this whisky are amazing for those that decide to open their bottle and for those that don't open it, the packaging is meticulous enough.
