African Single Malt 12 Years and Under - 2014
World Whiskies Awards
Best African Single Malt - 2013
Insider knowledge: Three Ships 10 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from South Africa. If distilled in America the spelling would be Three Ships 10 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to 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.
