There are so many delicious whiskies to drink from around the world that no one person will probably ever come close to tasting them all but we should try to expand our palates, shouldn't we? Not that we stretch all that far but we have gotten hung up on bourbon and rye whiskey lately so back to Scotland we go in this episode. Specifically, we're drinking whisky from Islay, the small island known for producing heavily peated Scotch whisky from some of the most famous distilleries in the world. Laphroaig, Ardbeg, Lagavulin, and the newest distillery of the bunch, Kilchoman make up our selection and we have a grand time drinking in the smoky wonder that is Islay whisky.  

If you've ever wondered what people mean when they talk about truly smoky whisky, well Islay is what they are often referring to. The peat used in the malting process imparts a unique and sometimes funky flavor (I'm looking at you Laphroaig) that many folks just don't understand or enjoy but for those of us who like it, there's nothing better. 

This whisky tastes like salmon smoked over a fire of burning rubber and creosote, bathed in the souls of a thousand mermaids. Sound good? Yeah, it does.
