Islay is usually associated with peaty single malt whiskies, and it is unsurprising for the three powerhouse distilleries on its south coast, that have become world famous, produce some exceptional peaty single malt whiskies.

Bunnahabhain's Stiùireadair single malt pays homage to the distillery's shoreline on the north-east coast of Islay. They used whisky matured in first and second fill Sherry casks, with a leaning towards deliciously coastal malt.
Generously-Sherried single malt from Islay's Bunnahabhain distillery, aged for 15 years in a Sherry butt. Said Sherry butt was filled in December 2001 and cracked open in March 2017, with the whisky independently bottled by Douglas Laing. 611 bottles were
