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.

First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
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).
