Port Askaig 8 Year Old

70cl - 45.8% ABV

Port Askaig 8 Year Old Single Malt is a single malt whisky that embodies the unique spirit of Islay. The whisky has spent a minimum of eight years in refill American oak casks which softens the flavours and allows the character of the spirit to shine through, making for a smoky, moreish dram. It shows flavours of citrus, liquorice, honeysuckle and coal fires. It is best enjoyed neat or with a few drops of water to open up the flavours but also works amazingly well in classic cocktails like Whisky Sours or Penicillins.

Tasting Notes


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


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.


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


A well-balanced combination of youthful spirit character and more mature flavours. An aperitif whisky, with more smoky character than you might expect from its age.
