Port Askaig 12 year old Bourbon Cask (Spring 2020 Edition), 45.8%

Price: $120 Issue: Summer 2021 Reviewer: David Fleming




Tropical notes of lemon and lime on the nose, along with delicate peat. Creamy on the palate, with a blast of peat smoke integrating seamlessly with notes of vanilla, manuka honey, tropical fruit, and dried seashells. The finish offers red berries, apples, hibiscus, and more honey, along with a flavorful back note of peat char. Smooth and lightly fruited, with the peat providing a balanced backdrop for the sweeter notes in store. (510 bottles)
