We begin this series of tasting whisky for beginners’ videos with a brief introduction to the world of Scottish Single Malt Whiskies.
We explain the distinctive styles of malt whisky available from the various regions of Scotland.
The main regions we discuss are: –
The Lowlands Region
The Islay Region
The Highlands Region
The Speyside Region
We start with tasting a malt from the Islay region, which is not to everybody’s taste when they start their whisky tasting journey.
We don’t like to make it easy for ourselves:-)
