Hard to find in Europe, but we were lucky enough to receive a sample from three ships distillery manager Andy Watts. The Three Ships – 5 Year Old Premium Select whisky is an artful blend of specifically selected South African and Scotch grain and malt whiskies that have been aged for a minimum of five years.
43% abv, €10*, blend
Nose: sweet, coconuts, vanilla, citrus, liquorice root
Palate: sweet, vanilla, citrus, oranges
Finish: medium long, sweet, coconuts, vanilla
Conclusion: not much to say about it really, but that includes there is nothing negative to report either. Just good stuff.
* this price is just silly; it is the converted price from South African Rand, I am pretty sure the tax and excise alone would at least double the price in Europe. Still, a good price for an excellent whisky.
