Three Ships Whisky 12-Year-Old Double Wood Blend is the sixth limited edition released as part of the Master’s Collection.
Our Master Distiller, Andy Watts, matured the whisky in double wood, the malt component over a 12 years in American oak and seasoned Amontillado casks. The grain spent 12 years in a combination of younger and older American oak and seasoned Amontillado casks. Although a drier style, the use of seasoned Amontillado casks imparted a wonderful sweet nuttiness to this impressive double matured blend of grain and malt whisky.
