These easy-drinking single malt whiskies have delicate flavours and are light, crisp and fragrant, like freshly cut grass. The 12-year old Glenlivet is a light and floral whisky – perfect on a warm summer’s day.
These versatile and medium-bodied single malts are characterised by fruity, honey and spice flavours. Try the 15-year old Dalwhinnie to get your fix of fruity and spicy whisky flavours.
These rich single malt whiskies are perfect for after dinner drinks. They have a deep and sweet nature and overtones of dried fruits and nuts, like the 12-year old Singleton distilled in the distillery of Dufftown in the Speyside.
A well-known example from Islay is the Lagavulin 16-year old single malt – a whisky that’s big and bold in character, with powerful smoke and peat flavours. Warms you from the inside on a cold winter’s evening.
