The weather was glorious and sunny, with cloudless blue skies, so we did our whisky tasting session on the balcony of the new visitor centre, which I hear is a big improvement on the old one. The distillery itself has gotten a refresh thanks to new owners Distel, adopting the white painted-walls and bold black lettering as the Kildalton distilleries, and has a glorious view of the Sound of Islay and Paps of Jura across the bay. David in the distillery shop is a knowledgable chap and can sort you out for any of their very wide range of small batch, hand-filled, distillery exclusive bottlings, both peated and unpeated, with a broad range of creative cask finishes, six of which we got to sample during our tasting.

Didn't know anything about the whisky, but I wanted to try it. I did the warehouse no. 9 tasting, highly recommend. It was a great experience and the staff were friendly and personable. Great location, great whisky!

This was the best visit . David’s presentation and knowledge, ease of delivery, obvious passion for the topic and generosity of spirit made it a tasting to remember and treasure. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart. The rest of the team were friendly and had time. I took the miniature and glass to a quiet spot in Islay later and toasted my dad who passed away very recently. Thankyou.

Seaplane Harbour Museum

The Seaplane Harbour is the newest and one of the most exciting museums in Tallinn. It tells stories about the Estonian maritime and military history. The museum’s display, that comprises of more than a couple of hundred large exhibits, revitalizes the colourful history of Estonia.

British built submarine Lembit weighing 600 tones is the centrepiece of the new museum. Built in 1936 for the Estonian navy, Lembit served in the World War II under the Soviet flag. It remained in service for 75 years being the oldest submarine in the World still in use until it was hauled ashore in 2011. Despite its long history, Lembit is still in an excellent condition offering a glimpse of the 1930s art of technology.

Another exciting attraction is a full-scale replica of Short Type 184, a British pre-World War II seaplane, which was also used by the Estonian armed forces. Short Type 184 has earned its place in military history by being the first aircraft ever to attack an enemy’s ship with an air-launched torpedo. Since none of the original seaplanes have survived, the replica in Seaplane Harbour is the only full-size representation of the aircraft in the whole World.

Simulators mimicking a flight above Tallinn, around-the-world journey in the yellow submarine, navigating on the Tallinn bay make this museum heaven for kids or adventurous adults.

Seaplane Harbour operates in architecturally unique hangars built almost a century ago, in 1916 and 1917, as a part of Peter the Great sea fortress. These hangars are the World’s first reinforced concrete shell structures of such a great size. Charles Lindbergh, the man who performed the first solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean, landed here in 1930s.

On the outdoor area visitors can tour a collection of historic ships, including the Suur Tõll, Europe's largest steam-powered icebreaker.
