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.Tasting Notes (2)
Excellent young sweet peat. Extremely simple, very good. Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com
Port Askaig 100° Proof
- Liquorice root
- Milk Chocolate
Tasting Notes by the Whisky Exchange
Rich with meaty smoke, burning logs, sea spray and rock pools.
Milky coffee and milk chocolate follow stony minerality. Cinnamon spice and stewed apple develop.
Sweet, spicy and very long – cinnamon and chocolate.
Producer's Tasting Notes
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.

I wasn't taken by this initially but now I can't stay away from it. It has a perfect marriage of sweet and smoke and then the liquorice in the finish is exquisite.
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!
This was a gift for my brother and he’s very happy with it.
