Description

This is the Port Askaig 16 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky was distilled by an undisclosed Islay distillery and bottled for the Speciality Drinks range.

Port Askaig 16 Year Old is aged predominantly in first fill Bourbon casks, with a small percentage aged in first fill Sherry casks to add more fruit and richness to the whisky.

With the youngest whisky in Port Askaig 16 Year Old from 1999, this expression is more robust than a classic Islay whisky and the peat has been softened by cask ageing.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Honeyed and autumnal - dried leaves and crisp, stony smoke hides a layer of muddy peat. There are hints of flowers - raspberry leaf and honeysuckle. A thick and spicy middle, reminiscent of sponge cake batter and marshmallows.

Palate: A silky mouthfeel with a syrupy sweet start is quickly overtaken by flinty smoke and charcoal dust. Zesty lemons and Sherbet Fountains are found in luxurious textures with a hint of violet.

Finish: Long and lingering soot and smoke, with a growing lemony citrus tang giving way to wood ash in a cast-iron stove.
