PORT ASKAIG 8 YEARS

$780.00

Port Askaig is a range of Islay single malt whiskies that embodies the unique spirit of Islay and its people. Nestled into the north coast of the island, Port Askaig has been the gateway to Islay for hundreds of years. It seemed right to name our whisky after this magical place. While there is no distillery at Port Askaig, it gives us the opportunity to specially select casks from the distilleries around Islay and create a variety of expressions.

The core expression from Port Askaig. Its soft, sweet peaty character makes it the perfect introduction to the Island of Islay. Aged in refill American oak, the character of the spirit shines through, making for a gentle, smoky, moreish dram.

Nose: Fresh, clean and vibrant with notes of lemon oil and sea spray. The smoke is gentle but alluring, reminiscent of wood embers and coal, cooling on a beach fire.
Palate: Rich citrus fruit and salt baked mackerel. Classic Islay peat reek is mixed with a subtle honey suckle sweetness while a background herbal character adds balance.
Finish: Barley sugar lingers as the soot and smoke dissipate leaving the palate clean and ready for another sip.
