islay single malt whisky

The Isle of Islay is home to some amazing single malt bourbon whiskey. Among others, Laphroaig, Macleod's, and Ardbeg are available. Each of these is excellent and belongs on any aficionado of scotch whisky's list.


Laphroaig is a Scottish whisky distillery located on the island of Islay. The distillery has been in production for almost a century. Its name means beautiful hollow in the broad bay.

Laphroaig is a peated single malt whisky that has a unique taste. In fact, it is considered the best in its class. Some of the main components of Laphroaig are water, the island's rugged landscape, and the local peat. All three of these factors combine to produce a unique experience.

Laphroaig is made from malted barley that is then dried over a peat fire. When it is distilled, it is aged in small, quarter casks.

Caol Ila

Caol Ila is one of the most popular Islay malts. It is also an ingredient in the Johnie Walker blends. Aside from the ubiquitous Big Peat, the distillery's name is actually a Gaelic word meaning "sound of Islay". The distillery is located in a quiet cove near Port Askaig, the smallest of Islay's three main ports.

This is the distillery's flagship single malt. Its signature is the "Sound of Islay" which refers to a smoky, fresh and floral nose. In a nutshell, the single malt is an Islay marvel.

To be fair, the Caol Ila name has been around for a long time, but the distillery wasn't the first. Before it was demolished in 1974, it was the farthest east of the three coastal distilleries in Islay.

Machir Bay

Kilchoman Machir Bay single malt scotch whisky is the brand's first foray into the general public, a fusion of three, four and five year old whiskeys. The name is a nod to the Isle of Islay's most scenic beach. Known for its waves of malt and its sea salty folliage, it also has a touch of coastal peat smoke.

Using only Islay-grown barley and malt, Kilchoman's artisan whiskies are made in the traditional style, with no chill-filtration. Their flagship dram is the mammoth sized Machir Bay, a 50ppm peated single malt that is a mix of sherry casks and bourbon casks. It is the distillery's best-selling release, and can be found at various retailers.
