Feis Ile 2024 Lagavulin & Islay Rum

IWA are out and about in Lagavulin on Day 1 of Feis Ile 2024. 

Lovely 29 year old Lagavulin purchased by my friend tasted “dram” fine splendid – open ashy smoke, citrus and sour – I loved it! 

The 10 YO is also excellent  – and a lot less expensive coming in at £175 instead of in the thousands of pounds…

We met lots of fantastic people, friends old and new – enjoyed the dancing and especially enjoyed the sun! 

A great summer day here in Lagavulin. 

Met author of A Passion for Whisky, Ian Wisniewski in person – we met before online when Ian contacted me while doing research for this lovely book, so it was great to catch up real life. 

Also – I was delighted to hear the true and wise words spoken by Salvatore from La Maison du Whisky 

” First of all – whisky is all about the people. And in Islay, it is completely about that!”

On the way home we called to visit Islay Rum who had a lot going on – not least their lovely spiced Islay rum! 

A nice chill vibe in both places today. What more can we ask for? 

Islay, Sun, Whisky, Rum, great craic, laughter, music, friends and joyful happiness and optimism. 

Gotta LOVE Feis Ile.
