Three Ships 10 Years Old

Best African Single Malt 12 Years and Under 2014

Peat smoke and earth on the nose with plenty of sweetness on the palate. Citrus and pears. Multi-dimensional and complex. Ludo Ducrocq

Sugared almonds, faint swimming pool aromas. Blackcurrant jelly. Light smoke notes on the palate also a leafy character. Good sweet finish. Tim Forbes

Black Forest gâteau mainly, and some black jack chews, juicy orange and cinnamon, dominated by soot, leather, tobacco – mouth-itching, and masculine. Robin Laing

A beautiful nose that combines dusty violets, crumbly peat and blood orange. Stunning maturity, touch of charred wood, bog myrtle and cumin sprinkled barbequed meat. Yum! A beguiling mouthful of herbal malt, dusty pear, oil and creosote set against a windswept, salty background. Chris Goodrum

Candy floss, apricots, peaches and fudge. Lively on the palate, rich creamy and waxy mouthfeel. Wood on the finish. Lucy Britner

Best African Single Malt Whisky 2013
