What does Scotch whisky taste like?

Ever wondered about the difference between single malt Scotch whiskies? Similar to wine, the flavor and style reflects the region where it was made.

Here's our guide to four of the most popular Scotch regions.
Scotch whisky from the Highlands is rich, and shows a balance of flavors. Honey, ripe fruit, oak and smoke abound. Elegant floral undertones bring it all together.
Lush like the environment where they are from, single malts from Speyside are full of fruit. Look for hints of juicy apples, creamy hazelnuts and plenty of baking spices.
The most important, and only officially recognized island, is Islay. Here, the whisky is strong and smoky, with kick of salinity and spice.
The Lowlands produce a delicate whisky. With subtle peat, the floral and fruit notes shine through in a more feminine style.
