Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Port Askaig 100° Proof to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Port Askaig 100° Proof Bottling Note

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).

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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 soot-y.

Port Askaig 100° Proof Reviews

Great light smokey peat

Great smokey taste, with some subtle nuisances that make it stand out from your normal islay peat. Slightly lighter than most smokey whiskies.

Excellent Islay whisky, probably from the Caol Ila distillery

This is terrific, I think. I'm a Caol Ila drinker and I'd be very surprised if this wasn't theirs, it has much of the 12 year-old's character but a bit more assertive. Very very good, loads of smoke and spice, a proper after dinner scotch.

The light Islay

Very light and mature for what seems to be a young whisky, for the clear color and no obvious wood notes. I like the light smell, something different than the usual peat monsters we see in Islay. The peat is clearly there (fresh grass and pipe), but all the whisky is light in itself. Other than that I could get green grapes. The finishing taste is not long, but the abv is so high you can enjoy the warmth in your mouth longer.

Good Islay but not perfect

Nose: cold smoke, salt, bacon, vinegear in the background
Palate: increasing smoke, very spicy, alcoholic and notes of citrus
Finish: much smoke, bacon, much pepper, oak, very long
All in All: A very good Islay. He's a little bit like the "Port Charlotte Islay Barley" but far away from his deepness and balance.

Love it

Lovely an explosion of taste in the mouth second only to Ardbeg corryvreckan shame about the nose. Best nose port Askaig 14 year

Nice Enigma

It seems too obvious that Port Askaig is a stones throw from Caolila, but I have a reliable source that says it is not from that distillery. From tasting I have no idea, to me it's like a smoky Bunnahabhain maybe along the lines of Macphails Collection 8 y.o.

Best bang for the buck to be found anywhere

Big sooty, ash, burning embers, smoke and long finish. absolutely delicious! I swear my eyes rolled into the back of my head when I tried this one. If you’re a peat freak you’re gonna love this.

One of my favourites!

What a Bottle!

What a bottle! If you have a few simple boxes to tick when choosing a bottle for the first time, and if these few details describe some of your search criteria: Smoke ; Layers of meat, complexity and a big hitting cask strength, then you need to buy a bottle. It's awesome plus, excellent value for money too.

Only for peat heads or tough guys/girls

Gosh this is right in your face - seems very young and is I think Caol ila though hints of Kilchoman to me. Blow a your head off - 8 troll probably safer bet if you like Caol ila a little tamer

3rd July 2018

Really quite young

Really quite young and the sweetness on the nose does not follow through. That said if you like a sharp peat hit it will suit.

Wow...just Wow

This is one of the better bottles I have bought as of late this is fantastic. Cask strength, non chill filtered, natural color Islay whisky this is really a thing of beauty. Now I know this is an anonymous bottling but according to my research this actually comes from Caol Ila which is really cool because it is so hard to find any expressions from Caol Ila other than the 12 around here. Once you smell this you know your gonna love it sweet and smoky , young but incredibly smooth this is drinkable neat but a little water really opens it up. I get a good brinyness with smoky bacon, sweet maple syrup, and a glorious peaty/oaky finish. For $75 I am very happy with this this is definitely my kind of Scotch. Cheers! The Sugarbear

Wow, a punch in your face. So many flavours and there's peat I can tell you!

21st November 2017

proper single malt from Islay

just love it from first moment..

3rd October 2017


A fantastic whisky and excellent value for money. It is quite strong so a little bit of water helps a lot and really brings out the flavour and smokiness of it more. I would definitely recommend!

5th September 2017

Complex after taste

Really interesting whisky...initially smooth and easy on the palette, then wow a most intense and sophisticated after taste

7th August 2017

More flavour profile then I've ever experienced in this price bracket

Initially pears and figs, if diluted slightly then really smooth on the way down with cucumber and tomato ending with meaty peppery notes like pepperoni

22nd July 2017


It's powerfull alright, and i added a couple of teaspoons of water instead of the usual one. I found that if i let it stand for 10 mins, it opened up and lessened the initial kick, giving a much nicer & smoother experience. Id buy another bottle in time, but theres so many others to try first.

Helt ok

Mycket ljus och oljig whisky.

Lukt: något spritig med nyans av hav och tjära.
Smak: söt mörk choklad, salt, tjära med lång och lite eldig eftersmak.
Rök: 3,5/10.

: lite avsaknad av kropp och bakgrund. Spetsig och smal smak. Ser att en del tycker att den är prisvärd. I Sverige kostade den nästan 650 vilket är något mer än Lagavoulin 16 yo. Mitt råd är att gå på Lagavoulin om det är pang för pengarna du är ute efter. Eller än bättre, Port Askaig 19yo, som är sju resor bättre. Jag gillar idén att inget färgämne är tillsatt. Helt ok whisky för att vara "direkt" från fatet.

Tasty & good value

If you like Islay malts, this is one you simply must try. All the usual suspects are in there, and i just cant quite put my finger on which distilliery it's sourced from, but it stands up well against ardbeg/Lagavulin/Laphroaig anyway. It's strength doesnt overpower it, to the point you only need your usual amount of water to open it up - it's terrific value

21st March 2017

Buy it.

Absolutely sensational, if you like Ardbeg or Lagavulin this is a must buy. What a whisky.

20th January 2017


Even I'm not a peaty/smoky whisky lover, this is just a great product.
Firstly I found sweet vanilla and toffee, then pear and some light dried fruits, maybe apricot. Taste ended via cacao to lovely and gently peat smoke finish that last quite long. Again one great product!

Beautiful Peat Bomb

Nose: Cupcake batter, ripe fruit, sweet smoke. Hint of strawberry and/or fig-flavored tobacco. Definite mineraly/briny element. Taste: HEAVY peat bomb, mineral seaweed notes remain. Tastes very much like a Laphroaig. With water - softens the overtones, brings hint of cereality & tar; smoke remains. This has to be a Laphroaig-based dram. Solid stuff! I need to try again head to head vs. Machir Bay to see what's my favorite Islay malt so far.

Port Askaig 100° Proof 57,1%

Stor smakupplevelse I klass med ardbeg’s starkare whiskys om inte bättre? tjära, rök, kol, päron, hav efter första sipparna. Med en ganska stor skvätt varmvatten så kommer lukten fram betydligt bättre som framförallt består av citrus/tjära och även i smakväg så blandar sig citrusen väldigt bra tillsammans med resten utav smakerna. den blir inte lika ”rough” men bibehåller ändå karaktären på ett mycket bra sätt. One of the best, prisvärd!

15th November 2016


An excellent and affordable example of this genre. Suggest that the macho try this cask strength with water (30-35%) to draw out the full flavour but beware it is dangerously drinkable and difficult to resist.

10th August 2016


This is what i'm looking for full stop! Always liked Port Askaig bottlings, initially good value but lately somewhat pricey.
Loved original "Cask Strength", and this is just as good. So sweet, oily & quoiffable, with that lovely buttery finish you get with really good Bourbon casks. For the price this is a total cracker!

17th July 2016

Smoke on the water

This is what I'm looking for in an islay singlemalt. The description do this whiskey really good.
