This Islay Single Malt was distilled in 2013 and aged for over nine years in two refill rum barrels. This Port Askaig has been beautifully influenced by its maturation in ex-Rum barrels, becoming layered with delicious fruits and contrasting spice.

NOSE: Clover-infused honey appears at first, mingling with the coastal scent of driftwood washed ashore. Fresh honeydew melon is cut on the kitchen counter, infusing with the aroma of charcoal smoke.
PALATE: Saline, yet sweet – like saltwater taffy. This combines with burnt sugar and rockmelon, seasoned with salt and pepper. Some spice appears next – a hint of ground ginger – and this is complemented by a squeeze of nectarine juice.
FINISH: Sweet barbecue sauce lingers with plenty of tropical summer fruits following closely behind.
