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.



Whiskybase was founded in 2007 with the goal to create the biggest resource of whisky information in the world. A community driven website built by and for whisky enthusiasts.
