The village of port Askaig sits on the west coast of the Isle of Islay, an island known for the warmth of both its people and its whisky. One of the most stunning areas in all of Scotland, for centuries it has been the gateway to Islay with a road leading to the centre of the island and the seat of the Lord of the Isles at Finlaggan. Port Askaig’s range of Islay Single Malts achieves the perfect balance of sweet fruity flavours and smoky, peaty character. Through the warmth and flavour of the whisky, and the style of the presentation, Port Askaig embodies the unique spirit of Islay and its people. As each new batch of Port Askaig whisky is released, you are introduced to yet another aspect of this magical island.
Exclusive to North America, Port Askaig 25 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky was bottled from a batch of casks from an unknown Islay distillery. Time has bestowed this whisky with rich floral notes studded with leather and spice, perfectly complementing its robust peaty character – this is a memorable dram that deserves to be savored to the last drop.
