Islay Single Malt Whisky

Islay single malt whisky is usually thought of as being peaty, smoky and very rich, and this is because of the prolific use of peat in the distillation process. To be called a single malt, a whisky must be distilled at a single distillery in pot stills, from nothing other than barley, yeast and water. After distillation, it must then be aged in oak casks for a minimum of three years before bottling. Despite the fact Islay is known mainly for peat, there are various other styles of whisky produced on the island, including some lighter, fruitier drams from distilleries such as Bruichladdich and Bunnahabhain.
