The fresh young addition to the family, Port Askaig 12 Year Old was introduced at The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show 2012 and is a delightfully vibrant, sooty, salty seaside dram perfect for autumn and winter hip flasks.Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting Notes by Tim F
Very fresh and invigorating, with bracing sea air, seashells, a minerally character like wet slate, plus phenolic notes of ash and wet burnt wood. Faint honeyed, leafy notes in the background. Becomes earthier with time.
Mediumweight, but packs a punch. Very minerally initially, then salty and sweet at the same time. Becomes ashy and drying, with the brininess increasing as the smoke, dry turf and chalky, flinty notes assume control mid-palate.
Some lemony acidity breezes in to keep things fresh as the ashy smoke and turf linger.
More savoury than some drams from this distillery, this 12yo has impressive depth of character for a relatively young malt, but remains light enough to encourage a refill. Very more-ish.

Lovely, long finish and a bit of bite
Delicious, vibrant and full of flavor. I get alot of wet leaves with smoke pouring through in droves with faint citrus holding up the edges. I was overly pleased with this dram.
