Port Askaig 8YO + 2 Glasses Gift Pack 700ml

The Port Askaig series personifies the Islay style, bottled from an undisclosed distillery on Islay. A soft sweet and peaty 8-year-old is matured entirely in refill American oak, it is fresh and vibrant on the nose with lemon oil, salty sea spray and a soft ashy smoke. More citrus on the palate with smoked fish and that classic Islay peat reek. A honeysuckle sweetness and slight herbal note balance out this dram before leading into a long barley sugar finish. A great introduction to the world of Islay malts this lovely dram is accompanied by two branded Glencairn Glasses.

TASTING NOTES
Lemon zest and coal smoke with warming barley just turned on the malting floor. Honeysuckle is eaved with liquorice with citrus peel and a coating of dark peat. A lingering minerality integrates with green apples, fading with sooty smoke.

Alc: 45.8%
