For the novice, and the connoisseur.

Port Askaig
is a small town on the northeast coast of Islay where it faces the island of Jura less than 1/2 mile away on the other side of the Sound of Islay. The Port Askaig Whiskies are a brand of Islay Single Malt Whiskies named after this picturesque town. London-based Specialty Drinks created the brand by collecting selected casks from some of the largest and most reputable Single Malt distilleries on the island and producing a series of independent Single Malt bottlings.

Port Askaig 110° Proof is aged in American oak barrels and bottled at 55% ABV. Like each of the expressions in Port Askaig’s range, they are released in limited batches which yield an unparalleled consistency and quality of character, that ensures each Whisky maintains its original flavor and dignity. Nonchill-filtered and naturally colored this exclusive release is the first of this unique range of Single Malt Whiskies from Port Askaig to launch in the US.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
