Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Tim F

    • Nose

      Citrus and sweetness initially, with lemon juice, orange zest, honey and lemon curd. The phenols are restrained, lurking in the background as coal and wet burnt wood. With time more sooty notes emerge, alongside grapefruit, tangerine peel and faint medicine cabinet hints.

    • Palate

      A soft entry at first, with honey and lemon from the nose and a hint of brine. Then a rush of spongecake accompanies the tangerine and grapefruit, before the coal finally emerges mid-palate, setlling onto the tastebuds for a long, but balanced peaty, smokey rumble.

    • Finish

      Long, becoming warm. Coal and pepper with some delicious flashes of honey and marmalade.

    • Comment

      Quite worryingly drinkable and extremely more-ish. The balance is faultless, with each flavour element getting its moment in the limelight before dropping back into the ensemble. An absolutely delightful dram.

Customer Reviews

  • Hugh M,

    I tried a dram when in the Highlander Inn, Craigellachie and it is fantastic. What surprised me most of all is how light it feels in your mouth, yet there is a distictive flavour of Peat. As a laphroag lover, I find Askaig to be a great alternative. My first find of 2012 and I don't mind if it is my last

  • TWE Admin,

    cmmmoz, thanks for your kind words - we're delighted that you enjoy Port Askaig so much! Afraid your theory falls down on one crucial aspect, though: Port Askaig is a single malt, not a blended malt :)

  • cmmmoz,

    surely the name gives this away? why would they call it port Askaig if it was not a blend of the two distilleries based there, oh and it does taste like a marriage of soft Bunnahabhain and oily Caol Ila, dangerously easy drinking dram this.

  • The White one...(israel),

    It's definetly a Caol ila, as an Islay fan and a Caol ila lover, it's smells like a Caol ila and the fact that the distillery is selling it's prodution more regularlly then other Islay producers gives the final stamp

  • TWE Admin,

    Sorry Tom...
