The greatest concentration of distilleries is in Speyside, where over a quarter of Scotland's distilleries can be found. Complex, diverse and elegant, they vary from lighter-bodied to heavy, rounded malts, all tending towards fragrance, fruitiness and sweetness, sometimes from the influence of old sherry casks.

Try Glen Elgin - mouth-filling, rich and weighty on the tongue, it has plunging flavours of baked fruits, liquorice root and Seville orange, leading to a rousing but cleanly pungent finish.
