Customer Rating
This is a cask-strength edition of the wonderful Port Askaig 19 Year Old, bursting with fabulously flinty, lemony, seashells-on-the-seashore flavours. Although the alcoholic strength has only gone up by around 4%, the result is a noticeable jump in intensity. A truly elemental whisky, perfect for swigging from hip flasks during cold winter walks.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    Nose: Intense salty, maritime character, backed up by sour lemons and bitter oranges, with the smoke very much in the background.

    Palate: The smoke comes to the fore in the mouth. Ashy, earthy and drying, with spicy cardamom and clove appearing and the fruity notes from the nose taking a back seat.

    Finish: Medium to long – the ash and earth are joined by hints of tropical fruit (mango and pineapple), which slowly dissipate to reveal a dry, smoky ending.

    Comment: An elegant yet complex aged Islay that combines classic peated-whisky notes of ash and earth with some fruitier tones. This is a sipper and definitely one to sit and take your time over.

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    Nose: Crisp, stony smoke hides a layer of muddy peat. There are hints of flowers and a thick and spicy middle, reminding me of sponge-cake batter.

    Palate: A syrupy sweet start is quickly overtaken by flinty smoke and charcoal dust, sherbert fountains, lemons and a hint of violet.

    Finish: Long and lingering, with sappy wood and sherbet lemons giving way to wood ash in a cast iron stove. After that there’s a lingering green leafiness – fruit leaves? Water: Dirties up the nose with heavily smoked bacon and adds more sweet and sour fruit to the body – lemons, limes and berries galore. The finish loses some of its its ashy bitterness, becoming softer and sweeter.

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Crisp and maritime to start, with crashing waves fading to seaside bonfires and earthy peat.

    Palate: Ash and earth lead to syrupy sweetness. Candied lemons, charcoal, cloves and sherbet.

    Finish: Long and lingering, mixing up tropical fruit and earthy smoke.

    It''s a great whisky, reminds me of a nice Caol Ila or even a Port Ellen. But, just a bit expensive in my opinion, which is why it''s not ranked even higher.

    We are getting; Arbroath smokies,heavy hints of nurses with TCP, essence of guy Fawks on holiday on the west coast Completed with a honeycomb finish.

  • Scotch Fan 24 September 2013

    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.
