A delicious ticket for a smoky journey to Islay.

After they gave us Highland Journey, Hunter Laing came up with another Scottish trip. Now, getting to the legendary island of Islay where almost every town has a distillery is quite an ordeal, so having them bottle its character as a mouthwatering Whisky is more than welcome. The bottler carefully selected barrels from the finest distilleries, blended the Whiskies and aged them in ex-Bourbon barrels, creating a truly Islay blend.

Smoke, peat and seaweed make you feel like you’re walking along the green coast of the Atlantic Ocean. The concoction was made by Master Blender Tom Aitken, who wanted to grab the essence of Islay, lock it in a liquid and offer it to all peat lovers like it was a postcard. It’s aromatic AF, rich and slightly influenced by Bourbon (ah, the vanilla notes). We can’t help but imagine sipping on it by the fireplace with a good book on the lap.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
