Sample some of Scotland’s most sophisticated smokies!

Our next tasting will be this Weds (12th October) at 7:30pm in the Lord Nelson on Trafalgar Street in Brighton.

The tasting has now sold out.

If you said you (or your guests) could definitely come, and you (or they) aren’t able, please let us know (via so that we can offer your place(s) to people waiting on our reserve list.

This will be a unique opportunity to taste a range of Islay whiskies alongside each other.
Come and share the wealth of flavours this small but prolific island has to offer and see for yourself why Lagavulin and Ardbeg are on opposite corners of the famous Flavour Map.
If you think you don’t like smokey whiskies, or if you’re not sure which to choose at the end of a rainy day, this is your chance.
We’ll be offering some of the best representatives of all that Islay has to offer – including unique single casks of classic Islays, and a bottle from the brand new Kilchoman distillery – all for £15.
Our line-up includes two very exciting single cask whiskies from the Scottish Malt Whisky Society, which are no longer available to buy:
  • Laphroaig 12 Bourbon Hogshead refill
  • Bowmore 20 Bourbon Barrel refill

 It will also quite possibly be your last chance to try:

  • Ardbeg Alligator

 And we’re sure you’ll enjoy the:  

  • Bunnahabhain 1997 / 13 Year Old  
  • Kilchoman Spring 2011
So however you feel about the big smokies, now’s your chance to find out why so many people go nuts about Islay.

Look forward to seeing you there…
The Malt’n’Copper team
