- Mouth-filling texture with flavours of rich citrus fruit and salty baked mackerel. Classic Islay peat reek is mixed with a subtle honeysuckle sweetness while a background herbal character adds balance.
Port Askaig says
Port Askaig 8 Year Old is the core expression in the range. Its soft, sweet peaty character makes it the perfect introduction to the island of Islay. Aged in refill American oak casks, the character of the spirit shines through, making for a gentle, smoky, moreish dram. As with all of the range, this is small batch, non-chill filtered and has no added colour.
