PORT ASKAIG 12 ans Spring Edition 45,8%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Islay, 70cl, Ref: 57526
Distilled in 2004 and aged in first-fill bourbon casks, this 12-year-old Port Askaig edition is a balance between the robustness of the peat and the softness of its buttery texture. Can you identify the distillery hidden behind the rich and creamy character of its whisky? Port Askaig is a range of Islay single malt whiskies that embody the unique spirit of the island and its people. Nestled on the north coast of the island, Port Askaig has been the gateway to the island for hundreds of years. It was therefore a no-brainer for Elixir Distillers to name their now emblematic brand after this magical place. Although there is no distillery in Port Askaig itself, this gives us the opportunity to specially select casks from surrounding distilleries and create various expressions.
