Tasting Notes

Port Askaig 100° Proof Producer Notes

Nose: Rich, with a meaty smokiness that belies its light colour. Freshly cooked ham and burning logs are joined by a soft coastal character of sea spray and stony rock pools.

Palate: Sharp and stony initially, with an intense minerality that quickly becomes sweet and rich - milky coffee, milk chocolate and spicy cinnamon gobstoppers. The spice grows, adding liquorice and stewed apple with cinnamon, along with heavy charcoal smoke.

Finish: Sweet, spicy and very long. Cinnamon spiced chocolate slowly fades to drying apple skin.

Comment: More powerful than you might expect, with carefully balanced smoke and fruit.
