Port Askaig 10 Year Old was bottled by Elixir Distillers in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Port Askaig series. A smoky, salty single malt with a streak of sweet vanilla, it has aromas of woodsmoke and burning embers, pancakes-and-bacon and ripe bananas, while the palate has notes of butternut squash, warm spices, green olives and fresh samphire, with a strong undercurrent of rich peat smoke.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes from the producer

    Nose: Smoke is immediately apparent; burnt matchsticks and the embers from a coal fire. Dry sawdust on a carpenter’s floor. Then the sweetness: streaky bacon stacked high on pancakes drizzled with heather honey, alongside banana bread, ginger ale and under-ripe apricots.

    Palate: A bold maritime peat rolls around the palate, coming and going like waves on the shore. Salt-crusted rye bread drizzled with extra virgin olive oil, roasted butternut squash, Chinese five-spice, and a salad of apples and fresh samphire. Smouldering juniper branches and white pepper follow, with a glass of crisp aperitif wine.

    Finish: Lingering wet ashes, bags of dried orchard fruit, thyme and grilled lemons. Finally, some of the five-spice comes back – star anise and fennel.

    Comment: Smoke mingles perfectly with a blend of fresh fruit, salt and aromatic spice.
