The Three Ships Whisky 10-Year-Old Single Malt distilled in 2008 is the fourth to be released with a vintage statement, and follows the successful release of the 2007 vintage. South Africa’s first single malt was launched by Three Ships Whisky back in 2003, and was succeeded by a collector’s tin series over a three-year period from 2010 to 2012.
CRAFTING AND MATURATION
This elegant single malt was distilled in 2008 by our Master Distiller, Andy Watts, and matured for 10 years in a combination of older and younger American Oak barrels to complement the delicate flavours of the spirit. Un-chillfiltered, natural colour and bottled at a strength of 46.3%, the whisky is presented in its most natural form.
Colour: Naturally pale gold
Nose: Hints of raisins, Christmas fruit cake, shortbread, burnt caramel, white pepper and alluring smoke.
Palate: Spicy nuttiness, medium peat and tropical fruit.
Finish: A long and lingering finish of spicy nuttiness leads to an inviting rum and raisin ending.
Alcohol content: 46.3% ABV
