Product Description

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Port Askaig, Elixir Distillers has bottled a 10 Year Old Port Askaig.  It comes from 25% first-fill ex-bourbon barrels, 60% refill hogsheads and 15% ex-solera sherry butts.

It's bottled at 55.85% ABV after the geographical latitude of the port…Just 33 casks have been used.

Nose -  A combination of sweet and smokey. Sweet lemon, peaches and honey. Light vanilla and hints of cake batter. Candied ginger. Then coal fire and lacquered barbecue meat, as well as brine and touches of antiseptic.

Palate - Again sweet. Oily and intensely maritime. Citrus with freshly cut green apples, a little buttery sweetness, almonds and honey too. A touch of roasted pineapple. Then a hint of coffee and salty marzipan. A light peppery heat. Plenty of ashes, smoked mackerel and hints of olive oil.

Finish - Really long, ashy ans sulphury, with hints of herbs, pepper and a light fruity sweetness.
