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 (1)

Tasting notes from the producer
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.
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.
Lingering wet ashes, bags of dried orchard fruit, thyme and grilled lemons. Finally, some of the five-spice comes back – star anise and fennel.
Smoke mingles perfectly with a blend of fresh fruit, salt and aromatic spice.

Thunderously good whisky for the money. My whisky of 2019. One bottle lead me to purchase another 5 so I can enjoy it in the coming years at my leisure. Two fisted bourbon and and sherry brawler with wonderful ashy smoke, citrus peel and salted toffee delivered at an alarmingly drinkable 55%. It will rightly go down as one of the best Port Askaig bottlings.
