The colors and flavors of single malt vary among several distinct whisky regions in Scotland. At the moment, we prefer single malts from the Lowlands and the Central Highlands. As we have become more experienced, our tastes have changed too. The more complex scotches please our palettes but the heavy peat of the Island malts is still a bit too strong. We list our favorite malts by region for your examination. Those appearing here have received five-star ratings from both Steve and Don.
