Bunnahabhain and Caol Ila – Islay, Scotland

Stop number four on our whiskey trail was Bunnahabhain distillery. There’s a long narrow road down to this area. We think some nearby houses are for distillery workers. 

Stop number five was nearby, the Caol Ila distillery. 

What’s distinctive about Islay whiskey you may ask? It’s the peat.  There’s a smokiness to Islay whiskey that makes it quite distinct from other whiskey in Scotland.
