    You beat me to it, Ralfy. This is going to be my review this Friday lol. Great review, cheers. I think it is Caol Ila with Laga casks but not 100% confident.

    Hey Ralfy. Great to see an excellent, affordable Islay malternative. Any plans to review your 10th anniversary Glenallachie 2006 Port Pipe?

    Fairly new to Whisky Ralfy after being a Gin man for many years. What are the rules on adding water? Is it as simple as high proof whiskeys need diluting down to 40% ish volume? Cheers.

    Instagram, tweeter and facebook are applications for gays. They are not suitable for tough Scottish whisky assessor. But what do i know, this of course is a personal opinion.

    Tried this one at a whisky show recently. Was one of the best isla malts I tried during the entire show.

    In my experience, young peated whiskey tends to show it’s youth more. If this isn’t the case here, it is a rare example of a well crafted bottle.

    Thanks for another one of your always great reviews.

    I purchased a bottle of 110 proof NAS Port Askaig because I am a Caol Ila fan, but I was disappointed. I had really enjoyed a couple of young (5 yo) Caol Ilas bottled at cask strength by Hunter Laing as Old Hepburn, so I was hopeful, and I really second guessed myself trusting a NAS whisky.

    You’ve restored my faith in this independent bottler and will look for this bottling. Cheers!

    this review surprises me for so many reasons.

    1) You wax-poetic about cask strength whisky, but as I noticed in this video you seem not to enjoy them at this proof. Always constantly watered down to less than 40%
    2) You stated that you did some online research on the bottle and then go and state that it is bottled at "cask Strength". When in fact the 55.85 is a symbolic number representing the geographical latitude of the Port Askaig village. Also, the barrels used were very well defined. 15% ex solera sherry butts, 25% first fill ex-bourbon, and 60% refill American oak. While that last bit may have been a used heavily peated cask of some sort, I find it extremely unlikely that Oliver Chilton wouldn't have mentioned it during the interview he gave in which he stated the above.
