Launched in 1977, Three Ships Whisky Select is a blend of malt and grain whiskies. The grain and malt components of the whisky were distilled in column (grain) and copper pot stills and first matured separately in American oak casks before being blended.
Three Ships Whisky Select is an accessible whisky. It is well-balanced and its subtle smoke and fruit finish make it a great accompaniment to mature cheddar, salted cashew nuts, and Black Forest ham.
NOSE: Soft, perfumed nose with hints of peaches. White pepper hides in the background, creating a warm and pleasant spice.
PALATE: Soft and mellow peaches push through with a little maltiness that stays on the tongue. White pepper drifts gently in the background without overwhelming the sweetness
FINISH: The finish is medium with sweetness lingering in the mouth for a while. It is slightly astringent at the end but pleasantly so.
