Port Askaig 100° Proof Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky ABV 57.1% 700ml
100° Proof is a punchy Islay single malt from Port Askaig. With notes of sweet fruit, peat smoke and minerality, this is a benchmark Islay whisky and a great everyday peaty dram at this price.
Rich, with a meaty smokiness that belies its light colour. Freshly cooked ham and burning logs are joined by a soft coastal character of sea spray and stony rock pools.
Sharp and stony initially, with an intense minerality that quickly becomes sweet and rich – milky coffee, milk chocolate and spicy cinnamon gobstoppers. The spice grows, adding liquorice and stewed apple with cinnamon, along with heavy charcoal smoke.
Sweet, spicy and very long. Cinnamon-spiced chocolate slowly fades to drying apple skin.
More powerful than you might expect, with carefully balanced smoke and fruit.
