Port Askaig 8 Year Old Review

Port Askaig 8 year old Tasted as part of a Tweet Tasting organised by Steve Rush of The Whisky Wire in conjunction with Speciality Spirits this Port Askaig 8 year old is the youngest in the range of drams from this unidentified Islay distillery.

This is the type of peated dram i like, a creaminess and not so much harsh smoke, and a lot lighter on the palate than you would expect, very much a lovely easy drinking dram.

Available to buy from The Whisky Exchange

Thanks again to The Whisky Wire and Speciality Drinks for the inclusion on the Tweet Tasting.

Tasting Notes & Details


Sweet and citrus fuelled peat with a big soft creamy buttery sweetness soft and inviting, some fresh grassy riverbank notes, and a bit of vanilla sponge,


Much lighter than I was expecting but it grows smokier & bbq notes, creamy and easy going, very clean with lemongrass and sweet light lemon peel waxiness.


Larger smokier notes that grow
