Islay single malts are probably the most sought-after category of whisky in the Scottish scene, primarily because of their deeply peaty character. Port Askaig is a range of single malts from the famous island, developed from the selection of fine casks from the various distilleries in the area. Port Askaig takes its name from the northeastern site of the same name on the island of Islay, exactly opposite Jura. In keeping with early 19th-century practice, 17 YO and 25 YO year variants are bottled at Port Askaig with Imperial 80 proof (now 45.8 percent vol) and Cask Strength variants with Imperial 100 proof (now 57.1 percent vol). Each expression within the range, from the youngest to the most mature bottlings, is selected in limited batches, each lasting about a year. In the variability of each individual batch Port Askaig ensures consistency in quality and character from bottling to bottling. To ensure that each whiskey retains original flavor and character, the whiskies are all non-chill-filtered and in no case is any coloring substance added.
