Whisky Reviews for Port Askaig 34-year-old ElD

  1. The_Osprey scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Port Askaig 34 Single Cask 1983. Consumed at a Elixir hosted tasting at Milroy's Soho, Feb 2019. The last dram of the evening. Aroma is bubblegum, vanilla, slight nappy (clean with some talc), big bourbon later, subtle toffee and lemonbalm. Taste is salty, nut skins, oak, salted nuts, very salty and a little boozy, faint esters again suggesting bubblegum, building salt and a raspy booze hit with some waxed citrus. And the reveal - this is a Caol Ila. Well, it seems that Caol Ila still tastes a little young and rough at 34 years old! 3.3/79

      Golden fruits (like Port Ellens), grapefruits, passionfruits, mellow, old style peat, smoky and yeasty, a touch of old tools, the nose feels delicate.

    Port Askaig 34

    Is 30+ year Caol Ila ever bad? No really? I’ve never had a bad one. Smoked peaches, tar, ash, marshmallow, lemony, nori sheets, salt, chalk. Powerful. Slightly more astringent finish but amazing again.

    91/100
