Islay

Islay

Just off Scotland's southwest coast, the tiny island of Islay is home to the smokiest of all Scottish whiskies. Instantly recognisable by their bold, peaty nose - often described as slightly earthy - and dry, rounded character, Islay malts are the product not only of the water streaming over the rich peat which makes up most of the island, but also of the fresh sea air itself permeated with a light seaweed aroma.
