Islay Blogging Roundup #315

Islay Blogging Roundup in stencil

And so we have firmly moved into December, including a quite chilly morning in West Berkshire yesterday. A bit later than in previous years I've baked my first Bremer Klaben yesterday and enjoyed a few slices this afternoon. Also got a few other things sorted this weekend. But now it's time for the Islay mentions in the blogs this week, the Islay blogging roundup:

Let me start with the first Christmas (in some way) related postings (have to start at some point): Pete writes Advent: Day 5 – Bowmore 12 Year Old from his whisky advent calendar. Anthropith's Whisky Gift Guide includes two Islay malts. Ron suggests to Buy Christmas Gifts Online on Islay. Konrad is selling a variety of his Islay and Jura pictures on his blog, including Snow Covered Whisky Barrels, Ardbeg, Scotland, Old Shipwreck Buried in the Sand, Machir Bay and Stag and the Moon, Isle of Jura. Justin Tyers comes straight to the point: A free-prezzie give-away? …it must be Christmas

A few Islay whisky postings, starting with Contrafactual and Port Charlotte Scottish Barley. Viskikonttori from Finland tastes the Laphroaig An Cuan Mòr 48%. Peated Perfection has a Lagavulin Distillery Profile. From Germany whiskyundfrauen considers Ardbeg Kildalton und die Frage nach der Wertigkeit. Scotch & Sci-Fi has a Whisky Review – Port Charlotte PC11 ‘Eòrna Na h-Alba’ (Bruichladdich) From Bruichladdich you can Win Tickets To A Jim McEwan Tasting In Paris.

The Bruichladdich blog also tries to answer the question What Is The Population Of Islay?

A few writers touching on Islay: Martin provides an update about his Current projects including a fantasy story involving Islay. I believe similarly Michel from France writes Un détective archiviste qui aime la bonne bouffe, le bon vin et le…

The birdwatching and wildlife: The INHT blog reports from Our 30th birthday party, belated congratulations also from me! On the Islay Birds blog we read winter has arrived, find the numbers from a count at Gruinart and catch up on the rainfall numbers for November.

To close of course as usual the pictures, where Ron has a view of Kintra beach. James Collett's picture isn't far away with Kintra Waterfall, Islay, he also has a view of the Long And Winding Road To The American Monument. Teresa shares some moving pictures of the Jura Ferry arriving at Port Askaig at night. From my own Islay Pictures photoblog I've picked the November afternoon in Saligo Bay, the view of Saligo River in full spate and of course the Starry night sky over Machir Bay, Isle of Islay.

And that's all for tonight. More next week. Good night.

Sharing and discussing. Opening up the discussion. Have your say:
