Buy in calais Islay Single Malt Whiskies Ardbeg Caol Ila Laphroaig Lagavulin Bowmore Bruichladdich Bunnahabhain Kilchoman Port Charlotte Distilleries from the Isle of  Islay. The characteristic style common to all whiskeys on Islay Island is the presence of smoked notes due to the peat used to dry barley during the malting operation. Peat burns more than it burns and gives off a lot of smoke. It is this taste of smoke that is found in whiskeys whose barley has been dried on a peat fire. The water of the Lochs used chars more or less peat and gives the whiskeys these peaty notes (a little earthy).

Islay Island is particularly rich in distilleries compared to its modest size. It has 8 active distilleries and a distillery that closed in 1983, Port Ellen. There are two major production areas on the Island, southern distilleries, Port Ellen, Ardbeg, Lagavulin and Laphroaig offer smoked and peated whiskeys sometimes to the point of caricature. The other production area makes a finer place to the undeniable marine influence on this island. Kilchoman, Bowmore, Bruichladdich also offer fruity notes and Caol Ila and Bunnahabhain, which emphasize iodine and saline notes.

Laphroig is the favorite whiskey of Charles Princes who gave him his Royal Warrant in 1994.
