Single Malt Whisky by Region
Speyside scotch whiskies are known for being frugal with peat and full of fruit. Apple, pear, honey, vanilla, and spice all have a part a role in expressions from this region, which are commonly matured in Sherry casks. Also home to the vast majority of Scottish distilleries in Scotland, as well as some of the world's most famous, including Glenlivet, Macallan, Glenfiddich, and Balvenie.
Islay is usually associated with peaty single malt whiskies world famous whisky distilleries on the island include Ardbeg, Laphroaig, and Lagavulin. Further up lies the smoky, coastal-influenced Bowmore, the unusually varied whisky from Bruichladdich, the oily smoky malt from Caol Ila to the north, and Bunnahabhain with its fruity, gentle malts.
Scotland's largest whisky region boasts a dizzying array of styles, from rich and textured to fragrantly floral. The Northern Highlands is home to Dalmore and Glenmorangie; the Southern Highlands include distilleries such as Edradour and Aberfeldy; the Eastern Highlands is Glen Garioch which makes smoky, fruity whiskies; and the Western Highlands plays host to Oban.
This region is more strongly associated with grain whisky and blended whisky than malt whisky. In terms of Lowlands whisky flavour, the character of the malt often comes through strongly, with a soft body. Traditionally the barley used has been unpeated, possibly because the Lowlands, East Lothian in particular, had a strong coal-mining industry. The region is home to distilleries such as Annandale, Auchentoshan, Clydebank, Bladnoch, and Daftmill to name a few
Touted as the "Whisky Capital of the world" as it was once home to as many as 30 distilleries, however, production has markedly declined over the decade. By 2010 only three distilleries continued to produce whisky in Campbeltown, Springbank, Glengyle, and Glen Scotia. The whisky produced here offers notes of "dried fruit, vanilla, toffee, and brine within a dry and pungent body".
We have a range of Japanese single malt whisky which include Yamazaki which is Japan's first and oldest malt whisky distillery, established in 1923 by Shinjiro Torii. Further, we have Hakushu which is the second single malt distillery from Japan's first and most awarded Japanese Whisky producer "Suntory".
