Our Whisky Tasting Masterclasses at The Islay Whisky Festival 2018

Once again I will be hosting Single Malt Whisky Masterclasses on Islay during the Islay Whisky Festival 2018. This is an exclusive opportunity to attend a tasting featuring drams from the different distilleries on Islay hosted by a former Caol Ila distillery manager. I have no links to any distilleries so my tastings give guests an unbiased look in to the distilling industry on Islay. We’ll be tasting some awesome drams , both proprietary bottlings and independently bottled drams.

The months are flying by and it will soon be time for our favourite time of year, Feis Ile – the Islay Whisky Festival 2018! We’ll be planning some extra special whisky tasting events to take place on Islay during Feis Ile 2018 and we would love to see you there!

Islay Whisky Festival 2018

The 2018 Islay Whisky Festival is set to begin on Friday 25th May and run for just over a week until Saturday 2nd June. Just like last year, we will be hosting a number of whisky masterclasses. Our tasting events on Islay are very special because we show whiskies from each of the distilleries as we are not tied to any of them. Our tasting events are therefore biased to one thing, Islay whiskies!
