On the eve of the millennium, Master Distiller Andy Watts had the vision and foresight to begin the creation of what would become the first-ever 21 year old Three Ships Whisky. Matured for 10 years in ex-bourbon, 5 years in 300-litre hogsheads, then Oloroso casks, before finally back to older ex-bourbon oak. Only 1,202 bottles were released. Bottled at 51.8%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Nutmeg, roasted nuts, sherry sweetness, coffee, whole dried coriander, earthy with whiffs of sea breeze saltiness.
Palate: Warm with peppery, savoury aromas and lingering nutmeg and spice.
Finish: Salty with an impressive softness of spice and delicate sweetness.
