Islay

Islay
Here lays the oldest rock in Scotland and from it runs water to the distilleries of Bowmore and Bruichladdich. Culturally whiskies from this region are malty and peaty, peat being the traditional and plentiful fuel used in the kilning process. Seaweed lends a medicinal quality to Laphroaig and bog myrtle gives the whiskies a sweet nose and a bitter flavour.
