With time on our hands, we took a ferry back to the Isle of Islay and went Whisky hunting!
The small island of Islay is blessed with no fewer than 8 distilleries – so we went about visiting them all. Made for a good way of getting to see the whole island – and served well to stock the bar!
Caol Ila – Very nice :-)
Bunnahbhain – Ho Hum
Kilchoman – new distillery – and surprisingly good!
Bruichladdich – Totally undrinkable. Put it in the medicine cabinet!
Lagavulin – Not so good on the rocks! (Still a favorite.)
Ardbeg – Disappointing visit.
Bowmore – Biggest – not the best but quite enjoyable!
Laphroaig – Nice and peaty!
