Best African Single Malt - 2013
World Whiskies Awards
What's in a name? Three Ships 10 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in South Africa. Were it from America it would be spelled Three Ships 10 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Sweet honey up front on a fresh nose. Almond notes give way to sticky toffee pudding.
Palate: Spicy and mouth-coating. Vanilla and hints of greengages.
Finish: Fairly long and warming with plenty of lingering oak.
