( C++l I+a) This is a NAS Islay Single malt in the "bastard malt" tradition, ie new name for established distillery. From C**l I*a, and about 8 years of age. This shows a heady mix of smoke, peat and a light oak spice with orchard fruits and dry oak. The palate is supple and wonderfully dirty with earth and orange peel. D&M Tasting Notes
Baked fruits, baking spices and pleasing wood notes of maple and resin. Long, tobacco-like finish is creamy. Taken altogether, the aromatics and the in-mouth stages are beautifully rendered. Easy five star Islay malt rating. *****Highest Recommendation, Spirit Journal December 2017.

Port Askaig 110° Proof is the first of this unique range of single malt whiskies to launch in the US but there will be more releases, including US exclusives, to come in the next few years. Created from carefully selected casks from distilleries across Islay, all whiskies from Port Askaig are truly ‘small-batch’ with as few as two, and no more than 40, casks used for each bottling. Port Askaig 110° Proof is a cask-strength whisky, bottled at 55% and matured in American oak, offering the perfect balance of smoke and sweet fruit. It is intense yet elegant, fresh and citrusy, and full of character that reflects the complex and beguiling nature of beautiful Islay Scotch whisky.
