2004 was a special year for us , it was our 10th Wedding Anniversary and we spent it on Islay at the Old School in Ardbeg .

Stopping just up the road from the distillery meant we spent a lot of time in the Old Kiln . Which also meant we picked up the special release 1990 for the Japanese market…… We also did our first walk on Islay , through Bridgend Woods . It was a great stay on Islay , the weather was gorgeous  and  we had a great wedding anniversary !
