Whisky Reviews for Port Askaig 12-year-old SMS

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.61 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A very nice Islay 12er, on the one hand sophisticated multi-layered, but not as filigree as a Caol Ila, just in between.
    • Nose
      Very dedicated maritime nose, very little sweetish peat just far behind, the beautiful salt air is the most present, mineral, light algae fresh on the beach, some vanilla in between, a few mushrooms vllt., A little brown sugar, rather sophisticated, never easy in the nose beating by force, light citrus notes, of course, too
    • Taste
      Finest sea salt from the delicatessen with fine smoked notes, in addition algae chips, nice light honey, a little vanilla, a little toffee, sweet malt, brown sugar, dry leaves, some vegetable-like zucchini Eg, young oak, almost towards licorice, but the sea salt remains until the end, fresh washed up flotsam
    • Finish
      Surprisingly long for 12y, the algae chips, dry malt remain, some vanilla and autumn leaves remain, dry-salty

  3. recursiewhisky scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Prima slobber whisky
    • Nose
      Turf, rook, jodium met frisse honing. Rode appels, rozijnen, gras en hooi. Mooie harde aankomst die langzaam diepgang krijgt en doet denken aan een winterdag aan zee. mild complex en zwaar
    • Taste
      Fris op de tong met zoete en zilte tonen. Honing, rook en turf voeren de boventoon. Daarna komt er zacht fruit door, gras en bloemige tonen. Er is een hint naar drop/laurier en hij heeft een moutige zoetheid.
    • Finish
      Warm in de keel en blijft zeer lang hangen. Rokerig en zoet met een nasmaak van stoofpeer.

    Hard to find bottle, I was lucky to be able to taste it at The Green Man in Ostend (Belgium). Nice to taste this as Islay enthusiast.

  7. karloff scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    This was a nice surprise off the wife, the only place I have seen this bottle was behind the bar at the Port Askaig hotel. Didn`t think it was going to be much and it was absolutely fantastic, up there with the best of them from Islay.

  8. karloff scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    This was an anniversary present off my wife. One of the best Islay malts I've tasted.
    • Nose
      An amazingly fresh nose, very earthy as well, peat bog, moss, fresh mushrooms, burnt driftwood and for some reason pickled onions.
    • Taste
      Fantastic. Full bodied and an earthy taste that coats the tongue with a bit of sea salt and a nice piece of Mackerel.
    • Finish
      Very long smoky finish with aniseed at the death.

  9. Alba-Lover scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Fresh and invigorating, with bracing sea air, seashells, a minerally character like wet slate, plus phenolic notes of ash and wet burnt wood. Faint honeyed, leafy notes in the background.

    Palate:  Very minerally initially, then salty and sweet at the same time. Becomes ashy and drying, with the brininess increasing as the smoke, dry turf and chalky.

    Finish: Some lemony acidity breezes in to keep things fresh as the ashy smoke and turf linger.

  10. granella2003 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Straw gels color . In the nose it is first malty with flavors of citrus fruits, than showing off

    with smoky tones of the wood and soft phenols.
    In the mouth has soft citrus aromas and flavors with notes

    of sweet peat, salt water ,
    oysters, march pain and

    cocoa, with the final medicinal tones
