Whisky Reviews for Port Askaig 1997

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    The difference between the nose and the palate is remarkable, with the latter being much more in your face than expected. Nonetheless, this is another excellent anniversary bottling for Bresser & Timmer.
    • Nose
      Quite earthy, but also plenty of sweet cereal and grassy notes. Yes, it is heavily peated, but shows good balance and maturity. Tart green apple and lemon peel, with a roasted peanuts and honey-glazed walnuts, as well as pickled onions.
    • Taste
      Soot, lots of ash, and tar as well. Much more intense than the nose (and the age) suggests. Pretty medicinal too, and a good amount of salt and sal ammonia, followed by licorice and cracked black peppercorns.
    • Finish
      Lingering medicinal peat and salt. Long.
