Bottled at the end of 2012, this is a cask strength edition of the wonderful Port Askaig 19 year old, bursting with fabulously flinty, lemony, seashells-on-the-sea-shore flavours. Although the alcoholic strength has only gone up around 4%, the result is a very noticeable jump in flavour intensity. A truly elemental whisky, perfect for swigging from hipflasks during cold winter walks.

Nose is complex: lemon and mint. Green apples. Fresh and bright. Brine and minerals stand out for the most part. Mouth: quite briny with lots of lemon and grapefruit. The presence of peat is rather strong, supported by liquorice and pepper. Soft medicinal notes too. A little almond oil and nice hints of gingerbread. Finish: medium long, clean and smoky. No need for water, drink neat. Quite decent dram, one should try.

First tried a port askaig in a bar, went out and bought this the same week. Wonderful dark fruit flavours backed up by a heavy honey sweetness. So good.

Got a bottle of this yesterday. Tasted it today, wow, fantastic! I love caol isla, this is very recognisable as that, but has something extra, quite distinctive. This is deffinatly the first of many for me from Port Askaig.
