I have been trying some more world Whisky recently. Trying to branch out from Scotch to see what else was out there. I have been very impressed with a lot of the "new world" Whisky and Three Ships was one I was keen to get a bottle of. Good marks for presentation, it comes in a lovely tin.

First released in 2003, Three Ships is a South African single malt whisky.

Nose plums, raisins, peat, toffee, salt and leather.

Palate offers oak, spices, burnt caramel and vanilla

Medium finish.

It's a really good effort. I feel that whilst it's nicely rounded you need to remember it is a 10 yr so with that in mind it stands up well to the competition.

Glad to see someone else tasting and reviewing these! They deserve some more press around here. The Three Ships was not quite rich enough to make it a top pick-- but then again, if the buyer is not quite rich enough, then it's really a good value.
