About thepeatypath:

It all started in the 1990's whilst reading the DCI Banks series of Peter Robinson - a classic Laphroaig being the signature drink of this fictive character. To accompany reading I bought my first bottle of Laphroaig - containing a small leaflet offering a squarefoot of land on the island of Islay for lifetime - registred as a Friend of Laphroaig since then (Plot Number 91.166). Unfortunately (or better: luckily!) the rent paid by Laphroaig - as we all know - has to be collected in person during a visit of the distillery. Which, knowing very little about Islay, the Ileachs or the Whisky, brought me there in May 2002...

Since those days I have fallen into love with the island and am a drinker and collector of all the varietes of whiskies the island has on offer. Nowadays focusing more on limited releases or even single casks with a bit more enthusiasm on less sought after distilleries such as Kilchoman, Bruichladdich, Caol Ila and Bunnahabhain - but not shying away from very popular brands such as Ardbeg, Laphroaig, Lagavulin or Bowmore.

Am based in Hamburg and Frankfurt and am always happy to share a few drams with similar enthusiasts. Am travelling to the island probably 2 or 3 times a year - happy to also join forces for any of these trips...

Ruadh Maor - For the members of Whiskybase

Selected a few months ago because we think it will appeal to a group of whisky drinkers. If you are looking for a nice drinking whisky: Ruadh Maor from Berry Bro's & Rudd for the Members of Whiskybase. A peated Glenturret matured in a sherry butt, not your average lemonade and a pleasant surprise. Limited to 120 bottles, we are not sure where the rest of the contents went. This bottle is now available in our shop.
