  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Definitely a crazy thing, so clear fish I had only 2.3 times in the mouth, plus all the vegetables, etc., very exciting and definitely succeeded in that! The nose could be a bit more expressive and 1.2 fruit notes in the mouth should have been allowed.
    • Nose
      Slightly cocooning campfire with a few algae in it, but quite, very filigree, banana, vanilla, pebbles, some sage and eucalyptus, fine sea air behind it, but overall very, very discreet everything, you're almost scared you smell the aroma away Little olives, weeeit removed some apple
    • Taste
      Ouh, very fishy at first, herring and mackerel in the mouth, fresh from the sea, then jumps into a mixture of brine with brown sugar in it, zucchini and sage and eucalyptus in the mouth, what a crazy start, lime, cucumber, green (not spicy) peppers, then again fresh fish, algae chips, tofu, really crazy, in between some mango and banana also quite possibly, but rather restrained, some vanilla and grassy notes
    • Finish
      Flotsam, dried sage, light honey and vanilla, dry-salty, leftovers from fish, long

  5. Glennie scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Lovely soft and well Integrated smoke on bourbon wood. Fruits like apple,  pineapple and banana. Salty maritime notes. Honey and Vanilla. Notes of leather that you normally find in somewhat older whiskies. Very nicely balanced. 88-89 points.

  6. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting.
    • Nose

    • Taste
      Citrus - lemon, peat, smoked ham, oily and oisers.
    • Finish
      Medium drying with smoke, peat, liquorice and sea weed.

    Tasting Notes by Keith Wood (Whisky Emporium)

    The

    nose initially oozes with Atlantic freshness, sea-salt and a hint of

    gentle smoke which soon expands to a full-blown peat bog, but given more

    time (4-5 minutes) I`m astonished as a vivid fruitiness including red

    berries, redcurrants and pears rise from those peaty embers. As for the

    palate, the fruit leads, followed by the peat which expands further over

    the palate with time.
       
    With 4 drops of water the nose is a

    little subdued, more aromatic as opposed to full-on peat bog. The palate

    is smoother with lingering peat alongside raspberry.
    A further 4 drops of water increase the fruit again, although it is

    now somewhat weaker in overall intensity. The palate is now reminiscent

    of gentle bonfire embers on an Atlantic beach. I love the fruitiness of

    this whisky, especially alongside the obvious peat and Atlantic

    freshness. A real `Gem`, 88-89 Points
    ......................................................The Port Askaig is also truly

    magnificent. Today has been very much about fruit and complex but subtle

    flavours. This Port Askaig has all the peat of a traditional Islay

    heavyweight, whilst at the same time offering surprising amounts of

    fruit. Those redcurrants and red berries are fantastic alongside a

    healthy dose of peat and Atlantic freshness. But can I classify this

    whisky as one of my "Greats" by awarding a 90 point score? Yes, upon my

    second reflection I have to say it is just slightly more preferable than

    that wonderful Dailuaine. Port Askaig 19y 90 points!
