Extraordinary Islay too!
After our wonderful tour at the distillery we went on a boat trip around the Sound of Islay eventually ending up in Jura for a magnificent lunch at the Jura Hotel. The trip over gave us a great opportunity to sample the Tempest Small Batch Release #3 while out in the Sound. It is a perfect dram for the sea salty air being cask strength with great orange zestiness, Bowmore smokiness and sea salt tang! It went down a treat with Patrick from our Swiss importer Best Taste. Amazing weather too!
On the way back we also saw one of these recorded on my iphone....
It is a Basking Shark and is totally harmless to humans as it only eats plankton but it was amazing to see. They can grow to around 13m long but this one was a little smaller. There was a lot of Jaws music being hummed on board at the time!
It truely is an extraordinary place!
