World of Whisky Vol.3 : Islands of Scotland was a fabulous tasting with Scotches from the unfamiliar islands and distilleries. All have a unique sense of place for each island and distilleries that represent them. We explored the island of Arran with Machrie Moor by Arran, island of Mull with Tobermory 10 yr, island of Jura with Superstition by Jura, island of Islay with Kilchoman 100% Islay, island of Skye with Talisker Distiller’s Edition ’13, and the island of Orkney with Scapa 16 yr. We all agreed that the scotches representing did not have the robust peat and smoke character. We were very pleased by the balance in character of light peat, floral, light cocoa, and honey expressions. All but Islay, only have one or two distilleries in production. Available in Hawaii are Arran, Kilchoman, Talisker, and Scapa. Jura and Tobermory were from my private collection.
