Three Ships Pinotage Cask Finish. Image courtesy Distell.This 15-year-old South African single malt from the James Sedgwick Distillery is finished in casks previously used for South Africa’s classic Pinotage wine. The nose has notes of red grapes, black cherries, plums, orange peel, and an earthy touch of garden soil. The taste is tart and fruity with citrus notes of pineapple and grapefruit, along with raspberries, banana, vanilla, and honey. The finish is long with gently fading ginger and cinnamon spices along with tropical fruits. (November, 2017)
