Port Askaig 15 Years 70cl 45.8%vol. is a malt whisky made in Islay and bottled independently, the distillery from which it comes is kept 'secret'. The whisky, aged in both bourbon and sherry barrels and smoked, has a great balance, thanks largely to the sweet notes from the barrel of sherry.
Port Askaig is a range of malt whiskies from Islay that tries to capture the essence of the island and its inhabitants. With a character in which light, fruity notes stand out in contrast to the robust, smoky peat for which the island is known worldwide, whiskies, bottled from exceptionally unique barrels, are intended for the enjoyment of both the Connoisseur and the whisky lover who does not accumulate as much experience.
All expressions of Port Askaig are bottled, without cold filtration or coloring, from limited lots, a fact that causes that between each lot can discern differences, always maintaining a consistency in quality and character.
The barrels used to bottle what will probably soon become an Islay classic are selected by Sukhinder Singh, one of the UK's most respected whisky collectors and experts.
Style: Single Malt.
Breeding: Whisky has aged in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry barrels for a minimum of 15 years. Bottled at 45.8%vol., without cold filtering or coloring.
Nose: After a layer of honey, smoked and bonfires, fresh peat appears with herbaceous memories.
Mouth: The entrance in mouth is soft and with sweet fleeting notes that give way to a powerful smoke and coal accompanied by light citrus notes.
Final: Medium persistence with memories of bonfires and soot.
Port Askaig 15 Years, thanks to the influence of sherry barrels in which, in part, has aged, adds softness and complexity with sweet notes with a citric point to the unmistakable peat and smoked so characteristic of Islay.
