Port Askaig 15yo Sherry Cask
From the Port Askaig chaps is yet another fantastic 15 year old Islay Single Malt. This time in heavily sherried Olorosso casks. 20% of this Malt is heavily peated and comes from 1997 with the main 80% body a lighter fruitier spirit from 2001.
Again we don't know the distillery's origin but it is from Islay. Some would say Bunnahabahin makes both peated and unpeated spirit however so do at least 6 of the Islay distillery's. Who knows but we know this tastes very good!
