Islay

The region of whisky producers known for their strong peaty flavor

Islay malts are the weightiest, most pungent and most heavily peated and are therefore generally the easiest to identify. These malts take their characteristics both from the peat used to dry the barley and their closeness to the sea. These factors give them what is often described as a seaweedy, medicinal taste and a distinct peaty flavor.

Laphroaig Select Single Malt Whisky

Laphroaig Select takes its name from the special selection of American and European casks, chosen for their unique character that they give during maturation. Inspiration for this new global expression was taken from history – 70-80 years ago, the time of the last family member owner of the distillery, Ian Hunter. Ian was one of the biggest influences in the history of Laphroaig.

Lagavulin Distiller's Edition

Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine. A really distinctive and distinguished dram, full of peat while the Pedro Ximinez sherry wood naturally has a big say; A more mellow Lagavulin, not quite as deep or intense as the 16 year old.

Big Peat Islay Vatted Malt Scotch Whisky

*/ /*-->*/ Traditionally, Big Peat would be classified as a “Vatted” Malt Whisky. But what exactly is a Vatted Malt? It is what the Scotch Whisky industry has traditionally called “a marriage of Malts”. Similar to a "Single Malt" (blended malts from a "single" distillery) Big Peat contains Malt Whisky ONLY from the island of Islay.
