Tasting Notes
Craig DanielsColour; pale straw. Nose: sweet peat and citrus, carbolic and phenols, light machine oil, peanut butter and charred lemon. Palate: sweet, smoky and slightly oily. Finish: sweet, citrusy and smoky, some fresh fireplace ashes, lingering charred citrus. Comment: A whisky that grows on you, becomes more complex over time. Doesn't like water all that much; gets some artificial sweetener like aspartame or saccharine.
Oliver KlimekColour: Straw - Nose: 'Port Askaig Harbour' is a very fitting discription, very maritime with spicy smoke. - Palate: Peat mixes with citrus fruit, vanilla and hints of coconut, ginger and pepper. - Finish: Long, fruity and smoky. - Overall: This is a typical Islay whisky that makes you feel like being there. Don't bother guessing the distillery, simply enjoy it.
