The first single malt in South Africa was launched by Three Ships Whisky in 2003, and has enjoyed multiple global awards for its exceptional quality. Three Ships Whisky 10 Year Old Single Malt captures the tenacious character of South Africa and its people – crafted in a country building a new tradition of whisky making.
CRAFTING AND MATURATION
Master distiller Andy Watts distilled malted barley in copper potstills and matured the spirit over a period of ten years, initially in older American oak and then introducing the whisky to younger second-fill American oak casks. The result is a complex whisky with sweet oak spice and the signature peat of a Three Ships Whisky single malt.
Naturally pale gold in colour, non-chill filtered and bottled at a strength of 46.3%, the whisky is presented in its purest form.
Slight sedimentation may occur in this naturally crafted whisky.
Colour: Naturally pale gold.
Nose: Aromas of white pepper, digestive biscuits and gentle caramel unravel on the nose.
Palate: Rich vanilla and toffee notes coat the palate with tropical fruit, spice and a lingering smokiness in the background.
Finish: A long finish of sweet oak, spicy nuttiness and warm peat.
Alcohol content: 46.3% ABV
