mmmm looks whiskylicious Tim and very tempting but I just splashed out on the Signatory wine treated butt PE – can I somehow justify buying some more?!
I can also recommend one of those ‘Old Malt Cask’ Douglas Laing sherry butt PEs that come in little 200 ml medicinal bottles at 50%. There’s a little shop not far from me that has a stock and I’m on my second – amazing stuff! (that’s as far as my tasting note vocabulary extends I’m afraid!)
cheers – the blog is a always a good read
Who is casting aspersions on Port Askaig as a single malt?? obviously someone who does not know much about good whisky – and what rubbish about the name – no there is no distillery in Port Askaig but then there is no distillery at Finlaggan either but it didn’t stop Ardbeg from using the name – also Bruichladdich have Octomore – no distillery there either guys!! I f every expression of a single malt must be named for the distillery of origin – who made the rule? Drink Port Askaig and enjoy – it truly is a very good dram – esp my favourite the 17. Slainte!
I think you’ll find Ardbeg did ‘Kildalton’ (The Parish which Ardbeg is in ) and ‘Airigh Nam Beist’ (An old Farm just up the hill from Ardbeg next to the lower water supply- Loch Iarnan ) .
Finlaggan is a non-attributed Islay single Malt from The Vintage Malt Whisky Company ( http://www.vintagemaltwhisky.com/product-finlaggan.html )
Nah ! never biased……
It’s a pretty good PE if i may say so myself……
