A 12 year old South African single malt whisky here from the James Sedgwick Distillery, released as part of the much-loved Three Ships range. It was aged in a selection of American whiskey casks for a dozen years, and bottled up at 46.3% ABV. Master distillery Andy Watts and his team have done a cracking job here! (700ml)
Sponge cake with cream and jam, with some apricot thrown in for good measure. A smidge of smoke wafts in later on.
The smoky notes at a bit more upfront on the palate, though fragrant vanilla and honey remain in charge.
Apple, coffee and walnut cake, a touch of forest floor.
