The fifth collectable, special release Three Ships Whisky 11-Year-Old Single Malt Shiraz Cask Finish is 51.4% in ABV. Both smooth and complex, drawing signature spices and fruity aromas from the seasoned Shiraz casks to balance and round off the peaty character of the single malt.
Andy first matured single malt whisky in American Oak barrels for eight years before finishing it in seasoned Shiraz oak casks for another three years. The warm South African climate accelerates maturation, softening the whisky at an earlier age.
Colour: Inviting rose gold.
Nose: Harmonious interplay of cherries, roasted nuts, Christmas fruit cake, smoky barbequed meat, and subtle orange.
Palate: Juicy with plush red fruit, cloves, white pepper, liquorice, treacle, raisins and warm peat.
Finish: Remarkably complex, the mouth feel is warm and lingering with subtle peat and a savoury, smooth finish.
