With the growing popularity of Islay whiskies, it makes sense that award-winning Scotch whisky brand Port Askaig would bring its elegant and approachable single malt to a major market like the USA eventually.
Port Askaig 110° Proof is the first of this unique range of single malt whiskies to launch in the US and will be followed by some US exclusives a year or so down the road.
Created from carefully selected casks from distilleries across Islay, all whiskies from Port Askaig are truly ‘small-batch’ with as few as two, and no more than 40, casks used for each bottling. This cask-strength whisky, bottled at 55% is matured in American oak and offers a pleasing balance of smoke and sweet fruit. Intense yet elegant, fresh and citrusy, and full of character that reflects the complex and beguiling nature of Islay Scotch whisky.
Port Askaig 110° Proof is non chill filtered and free from any colouring. It will be available at all fine Scotch whisky retailers starting in October 2017 at an RSP of $74.99.
