Launched in 2015, the Port Askaig 100° Proof is a big, smoky single malt Scotch whisky from an undisclosed Islay distillery. This is bottled at 57.1% ABV – which is 100° Proof in a traditional system of alcohol content measurement (different from 100 proof, which you’re much more likely to see on American bottlings).
Region: Isle of Islay
Nose: Earthy smoke rises first, shortly followed by smoked meats, citrus peels and a heaped spoonful of brown sugar.
Palate: Zesty lemon and lime, paired with ground cumin, Smiths Bacon Fries and a touch of apple juice.
Finish: Rather long and enjoyably soothy.
