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.

Awarded 96.5 points, and runner-up in Best Single Malt Scotch (No Age Statement) in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2017.
Excellent young sweet peat. Extremely simple, very good –  Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by the Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Rich with meaty smoke, burning logs, sea spray and rock pools.

    Palate: Milky coffee and milk chocolate follow stony minerality. Cinnamon spice and stewed apple develop.

    Finish: Sweet, spicy and very long – cinnamon and chocolate.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: 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.

    Palate: 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.

    Finish: Sweet, spicy and very long. Cinnamon-spiced chocolate slowly fades to drying apple skin.

    Comment: More powerful than you might expect, with carefully balanced smoke and fruit.

    I am 85yrs old. Find some malt whisky strong. I've been looking for a sweet whisky and this is it.

    one taste of this opens all your eyes and taste buds I suggest before tasting blow into the glass and breath in as this is very strong Smokey but tasteful, good for a cold winter nights to take the chill away.

    Vibrant, light coloured complex malt with smokey nose and sweet tangy citrous finish. Great whisky, quite extraordinary. Fabulous!

    I’m sorry not to be able to relate to previous reviews but it’s youth and harshness puts it on pair with illegally distilled products of the USA leaving a harsh and unpalatable tone throughout my pallet and adding water only exasperates the unpalatable experience .

    Exceptional. Caol Ila, unless I'm mistaken. A really fine whisky.

    An incredibly sweet single malt with a nice smoky peat blast. Amazing value - the colour is barely noticeable though. Very light straw. Almost like a new make spirit & as such one of the clearest single malts I have ever had. Probably the best young SM I have had too, definitely one of the sweetest I have ever had. The flavours are complex but reminds me of a smoky & peaty white chocolate mocha

    Ok, it's youngish but lovely, smoky & oily. There aren't many 100s I'd drink neat, but this is one. Probably the best value peated malt around

    Fantastic value for money with this exception. It doesn't have the richness of a more mature bottling but wonderful layers of flavour make this a favourite of mine as an every day drinking whiskey.

    Fan of this lineage, fan of good (esp. Islay) whisky regardless of age, but this one''s youth comes across a bit too much on the nose and palate.
