Highland Single Malt Whisky

Single Malt from the Highlands takes on many shapes and forms. Because the region is so vast it is difficult to make sweeping statements. Typically, single malt from the region is put into four subregions, named for the cardinal compass points. To the north there are big bodied single malts, with cereal sweetness and richness, take The Dalmore, for example. Toward the south there are lighter, fruitier whiskies with a definite dryness. Aberfeldy is a shining example of this. To the east there are some full-bodied, dry whiskies with lots of fruit and pungency. The superb Glen Garioch is one such single malt distillery. The Western Highlands offer full body and real power with peaty, smoky overtones, nearer the coast there are some more maritime flavoured whiskies too. The most popular Highland single malt - if Speyside is treated as a separate region (Speyside, of course, is situated in the Highlands) - is Glenmorangie.
