Stewed fruits and barbecue coal with sea spray and coastal rocks. Sweet smoke dissipates as core flavours of fresh citrus and salted caramel come to the fore combining classic Islay flavours with refreshing fruity notes. PALATE
Burnt honeycomb and baked raisins infused with five-spice and peat smoke. Candied fruits and sherbet lemon build as an underlying earthy peat brings together a superbly rich and juicy mouth-feel, with crÃ¨me brÃ»lÃ©e
-like notes and a delicious peat-infused caramel layer. FINISH
Long and heavy with maple-cured bacon and liqueur-soaked sultanas. A beautifully fresh and peaty finish. ABOUT PORT ASKAIG
