That's terrible news. At least your on the road again.
I had to Google "sump car" to figure out what the heck you were talking about, my guess was tranny pan,oil pan, fuel tank I really had no idea.

Turns out it was your Oil Pan Correct?
Different lingo over here.

Re Kilchoman Road

Sorry to hear that Willie had a bit of a mishap on our road. Having just started at Kilchoman I was a little concerned about the local rumours concerning the road . I drive a small Corsa and have absolutely no problem getting to work each morning , perhaps its the lovely aroma wafting down the road which is drawing me in. As the road is used by all sorts of vehicles including a large number of very large ones on a regular basis it is of course difficult to maintain in tip - top condition.
We know you are all anxious to get here, however having travelled great distances it would be a shame if the last few hundred metres were to defeat any avid dram - hunter .
Drive slowly and avoid driving directly on the centre of the road and you should be fine.
Willie , it looks like I owe you a special dram next time !!!

P.S. Dont listen too much to blethers from garages regarding "sumps per day" or suchlike , accidents can happen anywhere.

Kind Regards
John Mac Lellan

Willie,
Sorry for you. When I am on Islay, I either biked or rented a small car, so not much problem for me, but as mentioned by John, the road suffers a lot from the lorries.

John,
Congratulations and all the best for new position! I hope you can help John and Anthony to get the best of the distillery !

Should I dare to ask you who is taking over Bunnhahabhain, if they have not closed it down for good?

Kind regards
Patrick

Hi all whisky lovers

An update on the Kilchoman Distillery road.

I am happy to report that we have this week had our local contractor on site to give our road a bit of a makeover .

Generally speaking the road is greatly improved however we do urge caution when driving on it , keep slightly off -centre and drive slowly , don,t worry the whisky will still be there when you arrive.

Kind Regards
John
