Port Askaig 8 Year Old
As the seasons change, the harsh climate and tough landscape shape Islay's people. Strong and uncompromising, with an honesty and warmth drawn from a deep sense of community spirit.
The very qualities you can taste in this most singular of Islay malt whiskies.
The youngest age statement release in the Port Askaig range of single malts from undisclosed distilleries on Islay.
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.
A secret single malt from Islay.
