PORT ASKAIG 12 YEARS SPRING EDITION

SKU: SD20024

The 12 years Spring release of Port Askaig showcases the very best of Islay. This limited bottling features two distinct vintages from a distillery on the north-east coast of Islay, close to the village of Port Askaig. Eighteen ex-bourbon hogsheads from both 2006 and 2007 have been used to create a multi-faceted single malt displaying a perfect balance of sweetness and smoke. Non chill-filtered and bottled at natural strength, this is young and vibrant Islay at its best.



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.
