Scotland has five main growing regions, each with its own style and flavor profile. There is plenty of variety amongst the regions and even within one region to produce a diverse selection. The country produces several types of scotch, any combination of single or blended and grain or malt.
In order to deserve the Scotch whiskey label, the spirit must adhere to a strict set of legal regulations. Authentic Scotch is twice distilled, aged in oak barrels for at least three years and are meant to retain the color, aroma and taste of the original malt or grain. Look for the Scotch label, and keep in mind the age listed indicates the age of the youngest Scotch used.
The flavors, colors and aromas of Scotch vary. Be on the lookout for a range of profiles from savory and fruity to sweet and smoky. The spirit tends to be pleasantly aromatic with a long, complex finish that is meant to distinguish the good from the great.
