The Port Askaig series personifies the Islay style, bottled from an undisclosed distillery on Islay. A soft sweet and peaty 8 year old is 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 this lovely dram is accompanied by two branded Glencairn Glasses.
