Product Description

This new, limited release bottling of Port Askaig is a vatting of whiskies distilled in 2006 and 2007, bottled after more than 12 years maturation in ex-Bourbon hogsheads. There are no prizes for guessing the "secret" distillery - it is located close to the village of Port Askaig on the North East coast of Islay. This multi-faceted single malt displays a perfect balance of sweetness and smoke. Un-chill filtered and bottled at natural cask strength.

Official Tasting Notes:

Nose - The smokiness of peated malt fresh from the kiln melding with a background of zesty lemon oil and sea breeze. A maritime minerality drifts in.

Palate - Lemon sherbet and key lime pie accented by the sweetness of stone fruits. This blends with sooty smoke from a large hearth and boasts a toffee-led sweetness underneath.

Finish - Rich, barbecued Persian black lemon and dried mint leaves linger with fresh turf. A touch of smoked paprika has the last word.
