Thinking about why Whisky is differentiated by Region?

From the windswept coasts of Islay, across the lush fertile landscape of Speyside all the way down to the rolling hills of the Lowlands each region sources their water from different springs, rivers and lochs and their warehouses natural surroundings create a unique maturation for the casks within.

 

Each Whisky region carries its own flavour and character which you can typically identify just by nosing, here is a little insight although there is always an exception to the rule.

Campbeltown – Salty with similarities to Islay’s peat and depth.

Islay – Coastal, Salty and that famous peated smoke
