I like that independent version of a classic Islay malt. I've found a remarkable difference, in flavor and smell, depending on the temperature. Very fresh and attractive just picked up from the cellar, while less lively at 25 degrees. In any case, water helps to open up.
Light yellow-pale color. Overall impression: young and insignificant, not bad, but not remarkable either. A few drops of water open it up much better, but still an Islay whisky that is not convincing to me, that simply has too little maturation or character. Similar to the Lagavulin 8yo, like this, the Port Askaig is also clearly overpriced for me.
Cold ashtray, then a campfire with some water, some citrus fruit, vanilla with sweetness and memories of the sea
creamy-light, later also a little spice and oak. Vanilla, clear smoky notes, some citrus and sea
rather short and insignificant, but pleasantly warming with a discreet, pleasant, peppery flavor
