Port Askaig 12 Year Old Autumn Edition is a Limited Release expression. This whisky is a blend of nine refill American oak hogsheads, five Oloroso sherry butts and three solera sherry butts that have been used to create this flavourful single malt with a medley of smoky, fruity and coastal notes.
Natural Colour, Non Chill Filtered, 70cl at 45.8% alc./vol
Crumbly Wensleydale cheese, dotted with cranberries, evolves into smoky bacon crisps. Next, delectable cherry liqueur and the heavy succulence of boiled Christmas pudding, just set aflame.
A melange of juicy red grapes and smouldering wood chips, with just a touch of dried seaweed. Cherry tomatoes, left to confit in the oven a tad too long, and a smattering of hawthorn berries.
Salty and spicy notes remain – reminiscent of Tabasco sauce and smoked chipotle peppers. Echoes of berry tea and stewed plums linger on.
