Port Askaig 8 Year Old 45.8% 70cl
Port Askaig 8 Year Old
This 8 year old release of smoky Islay goodness is the youngest age statement release in the Port Askaig range. We're massive fans of young, smoky whisky so this is a dram which is right up our street.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Zesty and smoky, with freshly peeled lemon rind and coal smoke straight off the bat. Behind that are youthful touches – orchard fruit, freshly milled grain and the aroma of a warm malting floor.
Palate: Minerally and austere initially, with limestone and coal fires slowly giving way to richer notes of dark, earthy peat. Sweet vegetal notes of sugar snap peas are lifted by floral honeysuckle and a background notes of liquorice sweetness.
Finish: Fresh and zesty, with salt, pepper, and lingering lemon as the smoke fades.
Comment: A well-balanced combination of youthful spirit character and more mature flavours. An aperitif whisky, with more smoky character than you might expect from its age.
