“The original pioneer of Three Ships, the “Select” was launched in 1977. It’s a high-quality, smooth-tasting blend of fine grain and malt South African and Scotch whiskies that have been left to age in specially selected oak casks for a minimum of three years.”
Nose: raw, young, sweet, dark honey, vanilla, fresh double cream, citrus-peel, eucalyptus. Over ice, the nose gives the idea of being in a horse stable
* 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.
a sample of this lovely blend was kindly given to us by three ships distillery manager Andy Watts
