Islay Blogging Roundup #252

Islay Blogging Roundup in stencil

With the last Islay blogging roundup having been written on the bank holiday Monday this one came around a bit quicker. Still, I think I've found plenty enough blog entries mentioning Islay for this one.

Of course Feis Ile featured heavily in the blogs. The Master of Malt crew continued with Feis Ile 2013: Day 3 (Caol Ila) - Caol-Itos, Way, Feis Ile 2013: Day 4 (Laphroaig) - Cairdeas-ing Fairies, Feis Ile 2013: Day 5 (Bowmore) - Message in Bottle Winners & Flaming Bows and Feis Ile 2013: Day 6 (Kilchoman) - Kikkoman VS Kilchoman. I'm guessing day 7 and the journey home is still to come. Similar the LivingRoom Whisky team, Feis Ile 2013 Day Three, Feis Ile 2013 Day Four, Bowmore Bottle Your Own Experience are the entries so far, I think there might be more to come. Then there's Pete, who wrote Feis Ile: Caol Ila, Feis Ile: Laphroaig, Feis Ile: Bowmore, Feis Ile: Kilchoman and Feis Ile: Bunnahabhain.

On the Laphroaig Feis Ile Live blog entries included Welcome to the Laphroaig open day!, Having a nibble on the Cairdeas Cheeseboard! and Raising a final dram to Feis Ile and our fans of Laphroaig. The CaskStrength team went for Hatches, Matches & Despatches. Jura Distillery Open Day Fun - Feis Ile Day One and Sauce-ages. The Future of Meat Products. Bunnahabhain & Lagavulin - Feis Ile Day two.

If you prefer to listen (and watch) try the whiskycomedian with the Whisky Comedian Podcast Islay Feis Festival, who also has a picture of Bunnahabhain Distillery. If you prefer to read in Italian, I've got something there for you as well, Angel's Share from Italy has a written up their experiences as well: Feis Ile 2013: conto alla rovescia, Feis Ile: un lungo giorno 0, Feis Ile giorno 1: Lagavulin open day, Feis Ile giorno 2: Bruichladdich open day, Feis Ile giorno 3: Open day (nostro), Feis Ile giorno 4: Laphroaig open day, Feis Ile giorno 5: Bowmore open day e molto altro, Feis Ile giorno 6: Jura (e Kilchoman) open day, Feis Ile giorno 7: Bunnahabhain open day and finally Feis Ile giorno 8: Ardbog day are the entries.

The Ardbog day was celebrated around the world, Ardbeg (Ardbog) Day 2013 comes all the way from Australia. From Germany comes Ardbeg Pretasting vom Ardbog – dem Schatz aus dem Torf – in Köln. On the TWE blog we find Ardbog Day and Elements of Islay Tasting with Simply Whisky. The Malt Impostor offers us A Flight of Bruichladdich Valinch Bottlings. The Bruichladdich News blog writes Disruption. Independence. Challenging Convention. and Music In The Laddieshop.

A visitor starts her report with hillora’s big uk adventure, installment #15: tarbert, kintyre to islay, I think there might be more to come.

Ron reports progress on the South Islay Distilleries Path and brings a video Driving Around on Islay. The Our Learning Blog of Port Ellen Primary writes about the P7 Induction Days while Posie tells us of some Farmyard antics…. If you're using a Blackberry you might be interested in Gordon's announcement Islay Visits on BBM Channels.

On to the birdwatching and wildlife: On the Islay Birds blog we find a picture of a Spotted Flycatcher, another picture of an Arctic Tern and pair of Terns together with the bird nerds meeting report. Quite a few postings on the INHT blog this week, including Bluebells - Wild and Spanish, Green Hairstreak - Beautiful Eyebrow, a Caterpillar Extravaganza and Roe Deer fawns - George Jackson.

Finally the pictures, of which apart from the one included in the other blog entries there didn't seem to be any around. The only one I can offer you are from my own Islay Pictures photoblog, including Bunnahabhain on a calm day, Inside Kilchoman distillery still house and April sunset at Laphroaig distillery, Isle of Islay.

That's all for today, as of writing this the Scottish Roundup isn't updated, so all I can wish you is good night.

Sharing and discussing. Opening up the discussion. Have your say:
