Whiskies from the Lowland region are known for being light and grassy. There are only a handful of distilleries that remain in the lowlands region today. 40% ABV
Nose: Floral, typically Lowland, summer flowers, with some light sweetish malt underneath
Palate: Delicate, soft malt. Fine and light rather than fruit and weighty
Finish: Totally approachable, dying slowly
Speyside is a small area of the Highlands that is highly concentrated with distilleries. These distilleries take advantage of the superb quality of spring water that falls through the hills in streams leading into the River Spey. Speyside whiskies are known to be particularly fruity and sweet. 40 % ABV
Nose: Soft, gentle and delicate. Some sweetness and toffee
Palate: Clean, creamy and smooth
Finish: A building sweetness followed by light spice
The Highlands is the largest region of Scotland and whiskies from the Highlands can vary in flavour, from light and flora to nutty and rich. Highland whiskies are usually known for being complex. 40 % ABV.
Nose: Intense and fresh with citrus tones and hints of spicy oak
Palate: Clean and crisp with pleasing harmony between a natural sweetness and the soft spicy oak
Finish: Prolonged fusion of malted barley and oaky-vanilla
Islay is an island just off the west coast of Scotland. Surrounded by the sea, the distilleries on this island have traditionally relied on peat to malt their barley and as a result their whiskies are very smoky and medicinal. They also gain salty, seaweed-y characteristics from the damp sea air. 40 % ABV
Nose: Smoke mixed with marine and citrus notes
Palate: Smoke balanced with peppery spice
Finish: A swirling marriage of spice and peat
