Port Askaig, 12YO Spring Edition (700ml)
Port Askaig, 12YO Spring Edition
The 2020 Spring Edition of Port Askaig 12 Year Old is an Islay single malt made with 18 ex-bourbon hogsheads from both 2006 and 2007, creating a perfect balance between sweetness and smoke.
NOSE - The smokiness of peated malt fresh from the kiln melding with a background of zesty lemon oil and sea breeze. A maritime minerality drifts in.
PALATE - Lemon sherbet and key lime pie accented by the sweetness of stone fruits. This blends with sooty smoke from a large hearth and boasts a toffee-led sweetness underneath.
FINISH - Rich, barbecued Persian black lemon and dried mint leaves linger with fresh turf. A touch of smoked paprika has the last word.
