Port Askaig, 12YO (2020 Autumn Edition) (700ml)
Port Askaig, 12YO
(2020 Autumn Edition)
Another batch of Port Askaig's excellent 12 year old single malt Scotch whisky - this is the Autumn 2020 Edition.
This edition was drawn from nine refill American oak hogsheads, five Oloroso sherry butts and three solera sherry butts.
Those sherry casks have imparted a wealth of fruity sweetness to the whisky, helping to balance its smoky wafts.
NOSE - Smoked meats, milk chocolate and raspberry sorbet.
PALATE - Roasted nuts, juicy red berries and a good helping of barley.
FINISH - Subtly vegetal and earthy on the finish, though with another hint of raspberry underneath.
