If you mix malt whisky with other malt whisky(s), then this has traditionally been known as a vatted malt (or pure malt, although this term is fast losing favour). Despite what you might think, this actually helps avoid confusion!
Blend = Malt + Grain
Vatted = Malt A + Malt B (+ Malt C + Malt D....+....)
There was an eighth malt distillery, Port Ellen, which closed sometime around 1983 (?).
There is also an industrial maltings at Port Ellen.
There is talk of a new farm-style malt distillery opening on Islay in the not-too-distant future.
In short, there are no grain distilleries on Islay!
