The village of port Askaig sits on the west coast of the Isle of Islay, an island known for the warmth of both its people and its whisky. One of the most stunning areas in all of Scotland, for centuries it has been the gateway to Islay with a road leading to the centre of the island and the seat of the Lord of the Isles at Finlaggan.

Port Askaig's range of Islay Single Malts achieves the perfect balance of sweet fruity flavours and smoky, peaty character. Through the warmth and flavour of the whisky, and the style of the presentation, Port Askaig embodies the unique spirit of Islay and its people.

As each new batch of Port Askaig whisky is released, you are introduced to yet another aspect of this magical island.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Zesty and smoky, with freshly peeled lemon rind and coal smoke straight off the bat. Behind that are youthful touches of orchard fruit, freshly milled grain and the aroma of a warm malting floor.

Palate: Minerally and austere initially, with limestone and coal fires slowly giving way to richer notes of dark, earthy peat. Sweet vegetal notes of sugar snap peas are lifted by floral honeysuckle and a background notes of liquorice sweetness.

Finish: Fresh and zesty, with salt, pepper, and lingering lemon as the smoke fades.
