The following are sound clips from the pronunciation guide of Scotch Malt Whisky, An incredible journey...
and everyones favourite:
Each should (hopefully) open in your default media player!
Before anyone says "you've missed one", Ardbeg doesn't appear to be on the list; to compensate Bowmore has been added twice! To be fair tho, they do state the guide is imcomplete!
Hi Bruce, thanks for that.
The guy sounds a bit depressed (wouldn't you after pronouncing so many names? ) but still did a good job except for Caol Ila, I never heard anyone pronouncing it like that, at least not on Islay
Some of my other sites are: Islay Pictures Photo Blog - Isle of Jura Website - Guide to the Southern Hebrides - Islay Directory - Scotland Info
..I think as Ron.
I never head this pronunciation in any of the DVD that i have about Islay distilleries...
It's a strange pronounce, as it's strange the depression of the guy
The only two sound clips I have found for Caol Ila seem to pronounce it the same way... here is the other, slightly cheerier version, for you all!

Thanks Bruce. The pronunciation should be something like Col-ee-la. Check out the Islay Place Names guide for more information
Ron, its a bit strange that in the place names guide Islay on its own is pronounced eye-la... but when its part of the distillery name its ee-la!
Ah well... at least I know how to say Jura Superstition!
Simple answer Bruce - Caol-Ila in gaelic is the Sound of Islay and Ile is gaelic for Islay so though the last letter is different the pronounciation is the same.
Talking of Jura, before to be on Islay last year i think the pronounce was "iura",
But after known Willie Currie we learn that it's right "Jura" as it's written...
