Port Askaig 15 Year Old Reviews
Nose: Honeyed and autumnal; bonfires, 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: Lovely 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.
