Port Askaig 15 Year Old Sherry Cask Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: Sweet and smoky, with heather-honey notes mingling with autumn-leaf bonfires and coal stoves. The smoke is dry and mineral-heavy, but it sits on top of a layer of rich and muddy peat. Hiding behind the smoke are floral and fragrant hints – raspberry leaves and honeysuckle – and sponge-cake vanilla.

    Palate: Syrupy sweet to start, with a silky mouthfeel to match, but the whisky quickly becomes drier, with the stony smoke from the nose rolling in. Citrus notes appear, with zesty lemons and sherbet joined by a hint of violet.

    Finish: Long, lingering and sooty – charred lemons on a wood-fired stove.
