Feis Ile. A religious experience for any peat-head whisky drinker.


With 9 distilleries (and counting) on Islay, plus wring-in Jura from its neighbouring island, there's more whisky to sample than you can throw a glencairn at (trust us - we tried!) and an amazing atmosphere that thousands of revellers from all across the globe bring to the party!


Every year one distillery stands above the rest with the biggest party on the island with what is now termed Rock'ndaal - Bruichladdich, home of Octomore, Port Charlotte, and self-named Bruichladdich, whisky brands.


This Feis, your Whisky Flights host, Travis, ventured to the shores of Lochindaal personally on Bruichladdich Day to collect 6 absolutely stunning whiskies for us all to sample; from a hand-filled bottle of Port Charlotte to single cask Octomore & Bruichladdich releases, along with 3 festival exclusive releases - be prepared for a night of whisky that will blow you away!


The Tasting Lineup:

  • Rock'ndaal 01.1 - Triple Marriage of Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte, and Octomore
  • Rock'ndaal 02.1 - unpeated Bruichladdich Festival-exclusive release
  • Rock'ndaal 02.1 - Port Charlotte Fesitval-exclusive release
