Nose: Vanilla leads into banana, pineapple and a little citrus note, soft chocolate aromas blend into subtle spices, honey and toffee notes.
Palate: The spices are elevated and lead perfectly into the fruitiness.. Ripe banana and pineapple mix so well with vanilla, toffee and a little cinnamon then a softer ginger cake flavour arrives with a little dried fruit towards the end..
The Three Ships 10yo single malt makes its long awaited return! It is now a permanent expression in the Three Ships range, but with each annual release detailing the vintage of the whisky. The casks in this vatting were filled in July 2005, and there are roughly 11,000 bottles available. Non-chillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at 44.6%.
Nose: Rich and complex, with a combination of pepper, spice, sweet oak and roasted malt, all held together by a subtle peat smoke.
Palate: Spicy, with a good dose of malt and classic peat and a lovely creamy mouth-feel.
Finish: Full-bodied with a long fruity, peaty aftertaste, a slight hint of licorice with cinnamon and honey.
