The Heart of Scotland
Given the sheer size and scope of Speyside, the whisky produced within this region can often vary in style and flavour. Must one step foot onto Speyside soil to experience the ethos of this beautiful terrain and its variety of flavours? Fortunately, no! In many ways whisky can be a powerful tool for triggering sensory experiences, more so than observing a photograph or listening to an audio clip. Even if you have never been to Speyside, it is still possible to discover the beauty of this world straight from your glass.
Let us have a look at a few single cask whiskies that I feel evoke the true essence of Speyside. From the rolling, grassy hills to the warm sun piercing through the heavy clouds to the morning dew beneath your feet, these unique casks will take you on a journey of discovery through the heart of Scotland. Of note, each of these exceptional single cask whiskies were selected by world-renowned whisky writer and Chairman of our Tasting Panel, Charlie MacLean.
