Blind Islay Fury strikes again!

November Tasting Series

WL1

Greetings! It’s nearly winter again which means it’s nearly time for…BLIND ISLAY FURY! 

Join us as we celebrate with some of the Isle’s finest drams! Whether it be the sublime dry, sea air aromas and fresh, oily peatiness of Caol Ila or the wonderful dark, smoky and intense, rich earthiness of Ardbeg. With eight working distilleries but only around 3500 inhabitants, Islay’s lifeblood positively courses with whisky.

Back for its eighth annual outing, we will be sampling six of the island’s finest, as is the now long-standing tradition. In keeping with the dark and mysterious nature of the whisky you will be sampling, the tasting will take place “blind”. Not until you have tasted and judged the whisky will you be told what exactly you have been sampling. But fear not, you will not actually be blindfolded – a collected sigh of relief from most of you, a sigh of disappointment from a few…

This is our most anticipated tasting series of the year, so don’t hang about – get booking fast before you miss out!

BOOK »

Bruichladdich is one of the most popular distilleries on Islay, home of some of the world’s peatiest drams. While the distillery’s regular releases are entirely unpeated, it also makes smoky Port Charlotte and Octomore, officially the peatiest whisky on the planet.

We’ll be joined by Lynne McEwan from Bruichladdich to taste our way through some of the distillery’s whiskies, from the soft and sweet Classic Laddie up to the latest and peatiest Octomore yet: 08.3. On the way we’ll try a travel-retail exclusive and the newest edition of the distillery’s most mysterious whisky, Black Art 5…

Lynne McEwan is a born-and-bred Ileach. An expert in all things Islay and whisky, she’s been around distilleries her entire life, thanks to her father Jim – the legendary former manager of both Bruichladdich and Bowmore.

We’ll be trying:

Bruichladdich Classic Laddie, Bruichladdich Bere Barley, Port Charlotte Scottish Barley, Octomore Masterclass 08.1, Octomore Masterclass 08.3, Bruichladdich Black Art 5.1
