I have been testing and writing about an American Whiskey or Bourbon every month for the last two and a half years, but slowly I am running out of affordable bourbons available in SA to taste and write about. I might have to switch over the Irish whiskey in a month or 2. Anyway, this week I am opening my first Koval, the Koval Bourbon whiskey. It is available in SA through WhiskyBrother or Aficionado’s and a new distillery. Both to my collection and in age.

Many years ago, I was traveling through Ireland. It is a beautiful green country with great beer and of course, Jameson’s Irish whiskey. In Dublin, I visited the Jameson’s Distillery visitors centre. It was a remarkable experience. The Jameson’s visitors’ centre in Dublin showcased the art of whisky making and the passion that goes into creating a brand like Jameson’s. Fast-forward a couple of years to 2016. The James Sedgwick’s distillery in Wellington becomes the first (and only) commercial whisky distillery on the African continent to open a visitor center. After many years of asking, the Distell whisky powers approved the concept. What a wonderful way to experience this award-winning South African whiskies. Now you can see the whisky passion for yourself! So, in celebration of this special occasion, I try the Three Ships 5 yoPremium Select whisky.
