As the largest whisky-producing region, there’s a lot on offer here! You’ll find a maritime influence in West Highland malts, whilst the Central Highlands creations offer a touch of heather and honey. All are smooth, floral and full bodied.
Over half of Scotland’s distilleries can be found in the Speyside region making it the heart of the single malt whisky. With sophisticated and elegant flavours of fruit and sweet spice, their flavours linger long after your glass has emptied.
Thanks to a rugged windswept landscape, these island malts are unmistakeably powerful, producing smoky, peaty flavours with maritime aromas. You will often by surprised by the inclusion of an unusual flavours such as that of black pepper in Talisker.
Thanks to the rolling fields of grain, the soft landscape of the Lowlands is able to produce single malts that are lighter in both colour and body. With little or no peat used, whiskies from this region are generally light and fresh with cereal flavours.
