Product Description

A secret Islay bottling from Port Askaig, this one coming in at cask strength.

There's something very Ardbegian about the nose on this one (that's no bad thing!)  An initial sweet oakiness gives way to sweet almost caramel peatiness along with lime zest, saltiness and brine.  There's a density to this that is beautiful.

The palate is initially fresh, sweet and quite salty before the drying peat smoke comes through.  Earthy and slightly bitter (coffee grounds) the smoke element is more restrained than you might imagine at cask strength and comes through more on the finish, coupled with a slightly warming character from the higher abv.

The finish is long drying and slightly salty with a lingering bonfire smoke.
