Islay Whisky Region Map

Islay

Only one distillery from the Islay region features in the Flora and Fauna collection. Two whiskies from the Caol Ila Distillery are available as part of the original 1991 release and subsequent 1998 cask strength limited release.

Islay whiskies are known for their smokey characteristics, attributed to the local peat from which water and barley is sourced for production. Whilst the cask strength edition boasts the expected peatiness of an Islay malt, the 1991 edition is perhaps slightly unusual with its fresh aroma.
