The Oddbins Take

They Say

Although every distillery on Islay has its own character, London-based Specialty Drinks has selected parcels of what it believes to be the most balanced single malt whisky on the island to bottle as Port Askaig. Named after the first port of call for visitors to the island as they come across on the mainland ferry. Although Islay's signature smokey, maritime character is present in Port Askaig 8 year, there is also a fruity and citrus character captured. As with all independent bottlings produced by Specialty Drinks, Port Askaig is non-chill-filtered and is free of added colour.

We Say

Port Askaig, they’re a mysterious bunch. They bottle single malts form undisclosed Islay distilleries, seriously, nobody knows where their whisky comes from. It just appears on our shelves in the dead of night... Port Askaig is Batman! Dark and Smokey, yet warm and gentle when the occasion calls. Most importantly, if you try and find out who’s behind the mask, they’ll karate chop you in the windpipe! Don’t let that deter you though, when it comes down to it, it doesn’t really matter who’s wearing the cloak and tight trousers, it’s about what they do for the world & Port Askaig have bottled a deliciously intriguing expression of Islay.
