Have you ever wanted to compare scotches from the different regions of Scotland? Or know someone who has? Well normally such an undertaking is both difficult and expensive. Buying five bottles of good scotch will cost you hundreds of dollars. Even finding a bar with an excellent scotch selection is quite difficult, let alone it will still cost you well over $50 for your trouble.
Well coming in at well under half that price is the Regions of Scotland Whisky Tasting Set by the good folks at Master of Malt. This spectacular set has chosen great representatives from five different regions of Scotland: Islay, the Highlands, Speyside, the Lowlands and the Isle of Skye. These fine regions are represented by the smoke-peat notes of Kilchoman Machir Bay, the superb Glenfarclas 15 Year Old which has been called the Christmas cake of whiskies, and the subtle smokiness of the honeyed Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old. You will also get to try the sweet vanilla of the Auchentoshan 12 Year Old and the “volcanic” smoke and peat from the intense Talisker 10 Year Old.
All of these whiskies are amazing and are excellent representatives for their regions. Many of these scotches are exceptionally scored in the mid-90s in the Whisky Bible, which I can assure you is no easy achievement. So stop waiting! and get your own tasting set today. Whether for yourself or a close friend, this is a set sure to shape how you experience scotch.
