Port Askaig 8Yo Islay Single Malt Whisky 700ml, 45.80%
This is the latest core expression to join the Port Askaig range, a soft sweet and peaty 8 year old from an undisclosed distillery. Matured entirely in refill American oak, it is fresh and vibrant on the nose with lemon oil, salty sea spray and a soft ashy smoke. More citrus on the palate with smoked fish and that classic Islay peat reek. A honeysuckle sweetness and slight herbal note balances out this dram before leading into a long barley sugar finish. A great introduction to the world of Islay malts.
