Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange
Nose: Zesty and smoky: freshly peeled lemons and coal smoke with orchard fruit and fresh grain.
Palate: Limestone and coal fires give way to honeysuckle, sugar-snap peas and liquorice.
Finish: Salt, pepper and lingering lemon as the smoke fades.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Nose: Lemon zest and coal smoke with warming barley just turned on the malting floor.
Palate: Limestone, sugar snaps and coating of dark peat. Honeysuckle weaved with liquorice sweetness.
Finish: Fresh flavours of rock salt and black pepper linger as the smoke slowly fades.

Great product, a lovely variation away from the strong kick that some Islay distilleries tend to have. I would highly recommend.
I was really surprised by this 8 yr old, a very nice whiskey, not harsh and reasonably complex and a very attractive price.
harsh and thin, a slight smoke but unwelcoming.
Lots of dark peat and black pepper. Unsubstantial mouthfeel. Smoky and a mineral water finish. I appreciate it for variety, but it won’t replace my usual.
A bit of smoke and not much else..
I'm a big fan of Port Askaig and this for the price is a good whisky and would likely benefit at its young age from a higher abv
