He Willed His Ashes to Islay

Kilnaughton Bay, Islay
Tonight's 60 Minutes included a segment on the Scottish island of Islay, where peaty whisky comes from. Left incomplete at Bob Simon's death. the segment mentions a novel will provision. One testator so loved his Islay whisky that he required his ashes to be taken there and sprinkled at sea, near the distiller of his favorite drink.

I would have loved to have been executor of that will.

Here is a glimpse of Bob Simon interviewing the laird of Islay, whose ancestors once owned the whole island.
