The staff is amazingly friendly. We missed the tour because wet walked in the rain and it took longer than expected. The whiskey was vey good. Less Smokey than others. If you're from USA you'll probably relate it more to our whiskeys.

Visiting the Laphroaig distillery is like a pilgrimage for some, for others it is simply a day out. Whatever your motivation I would recommend a visit here at some point while you are on Islay.

Flybe is the plane company that services Islay. It really depends on the flight times available. You'll probably have to arrive one day and leave the next.
