Named after the ancient ferry port and fishing harbour situated on the East coast of Islay. Port Askaig is an award winning dram from the folks who brought us the mighty fine "Elements of Islay" independent bottlings.
The Autumn 2020 Edition was drawn from nine refill American oak hogsheads, five Oloroso sherry butts and three solera sherry butts. The sherry casks have imparted a wealth of fruity sweetness to the whisky, to counter and compliment the smokiness.
Only 9000 bottles have been released worldwide.
Aromas of cranberries, smoky bacon, black cherries and Christmas pudding fill the nose. The palate offers notes of red grapes, smouldering driftwood, dry seaweed, cherry tomatoes and hawthorn berries.
