A Honeymoon on Islay

A brief note from the editor (that’s me, Mark). I’m getting married, like, imminently. My wonderful wife-to-be (maybe actually my wife by the time this goes live) wanted to honeymoon in Scotland, as we love the place so much. This time she wanted to go to an Island – any island.

And, well, I merely made the suggestion that we go to Islay. Not for any particular reason (other than all the whisky distilleries).

So there may be a delay in service on Malt for a couple of weeks, in which I will most definitely be taking a snap or two of whisky distilleries around Islay. No guarantees, but hopefully I’ll post them on the Malt Twitter feed or Facebook page. I’ll likely chat about them when I’m back, too.

Have a few nice drams while I’m gone! I know I will be…


I've written about (and reviewed) whisky for Whisky Magazine, among other publications, and have been a whisky judge for competitions including the World Whiskies Awards. I've done other writing too: several mass market genre novels, a few short stories, including for BBC Radio 4. For my day job (I know, I don't get out much) I work in digital content. Follow me on Instagram.com/maltreview/ or Twitter.com/MaltReview. Generally, my tastes lean towards ex-sherry cask and ex-wine cask influences on the spirit, but I'm not so fussed as long as the whisky's gone into good wood.
