You are now browsing - Scotch Whisky - Island
This unoffical region (technically still the Highland region) spans the Island distilleries in Scotland (other than Islay, Islay is a region in its own right).
These are as follows;
- Isle of Arran - Arran Distillery
- Isle of Mull - Tobermory Distillery
- Isle of Skye - Talisker Distillery
- Isle of Jura - Jura Distillery
- Isle of Lewis - Abhainn Dearg Distillery
- Orkney Isles - Highland Park Distillery and Scapa Distillery
As might be expected when these are viewed on a map, the classification is not so much based on characteristics as convenience - this is a suitable sub group in which to deal with the remaining whiskies which do not fit in to any other.
Once again, generalisations are difficult to make due to the diverse nature of the whisky that each of the distilleries produce.
Island - 70cl / 46%
A wonderful whisky with vanilla and tropical fruit. Nutty on the palate with candied peel and dates. The finish is sweet and long. Launched a number of years ago to celebrate Ayr United Football Clubs' centenary year; 1910-2010.

Brand new from Highland Park comes their no age statement "Dark origins".Designed to pack more of a flavourful punch than the standard 12 year old, this whisky has been aged in double first-fill sherry casks for a naturally darker and richer flavour.

A vatting of six excellent malts from well renowned Scottish island distilleries. Islay,Arran,Jura,Skye, Mull and the Orkney Islands. The palate is smooth with a light mix of spice , vanilla and honey. Finishing with some light peat.
Blended Whisky - 70cl / 40%
A veritable breath of fresh air. Fresh and light with subtle hints of vanilla and sweet fruits. As blends go, for the money this is truly excellent. I think the Bard would have approved.
Island - 70cl / 40%
The nose is quite light and floral, hints of fruit. The palate is very gentle to start with an oily mouth-feel, fresh fruits emerge before a hint of smoke adds some balance, a great quaffing whisky!
Cream Liqueurs - 70cl / 17%
Arran Gold is in our opinion one of the best cream liqueurs in the world. Absolutely delicious from start to finish. It is made with Arran Single Malt Whisky which makes a real difference in terms of flavour. The nose has warm, melted toffee and lashings of double cream. The taste is beautifully sw…
