Port Ellen, Islay, Strathclyde
The island of
Islay’s prosperity derives from whisky: roughly 4 million gallons proof are
produced here each year, and distilling employs about 200 people. At one time
the islanders were rewarded with duty free Scotch themselves, with unfortunate
results. Drunk with due care and attention, however, Islay malts are among the
nation’s finest, including the peaty Laphroig (pronounced ‘Lafroyg’), to some
the best of all.
