Single Malts from the islands
Also called Islay Whisky, it comes from the Scottish islands known for whisky.
The green-violet hills overgrown with heather characterise the landscape. The whisky production is particularly productive in the south and west as the soils here are the most fertile.
World famous companies like Ardbeg, Bowmore, Bruichladdich, Bunnahabhain, Caol Ila and Lagavulin are located on the islands. In terms of taste, the single malts from the southern distilleries (Ardbeg, Laphroaig, Lagavulin) can be distinguished from the northern ones (Bunnahabhain, Bruichladdich, Caol Ila). In the south the malt is mainly dried with peat and the peaty water is also used for the entire production. This results in intensive whiskies with a taste of peat, smoke and sea salt. In contrast, milder, not so heavy whiskies with a taste of moss and nuts are produced in the north.
