Port Askaig 100 Proof Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

$150.00 Bottle
  • ABV 57.1%

We first tasted whiskies under the Port Askaig label several years ago and found them to be very appealing, fruity-smokey styles. Sourced from an "unknown Islay distillery" (presumably Caol Ila) and bottled by Specialty Drinks Ltd. who were also responsible for the Elements of Islay independent bottlings, a 100 proof edition was launched in 2015 and has just arrived in Australia ("100° Proof" refers to the traditional system of alcohol measurement - the actual abv here is 57.1%.) The whisky was matured in refill ex-bourbon casks, and bottled without an age statement, though the youngest whisky is reported to be seven years old.

Other reviews... Very enjoyable, and definitely great value for money. The finish falls off a little, and it's not overly complex, but if you dig these flavours (like I do), it's definitely a winner! Pure, unadulterated Caol Ila, but nicely amplified and concentrated over the regular official bottlings. Lovely. I must admit I sometimes shy away from independent and/or mystery bottlings that I'm not familiar with, but there's no reason to do so in this case. These guys clearly know what they're doing. If you're a fan of Caol Ila but you wish they'd turn up the volume, or you've had your fill of the standard bottlings, this is a sure-fire way to satisfy that desire.
