Port Askaig 8 Year Old Producer Notes
Nose: Zesty and smoky, with freshly peeled lemon rind and coal smoke straight off the bat. Behind that are youthful touches – orchard fruit, freshly milled grain and the aroma of a warm malting floor.
Palate: Minerally and austere initially, with limestone and coal fires slowly giving way to richer notes of dark, earthy peat. Sweet vegetal notes of sugar snap peas are lifted by floral honeysuckle and a background notes of liquorice sweetness.
Finish: Fresh and zesty, with salt, pepper, and lingering lemon as the smoke fades.
