BEST SCOTCH WHISKEY

Scotland treasures its  best Scotch Whisky and the Scottish government has established several regulations. Each of the roughly 100 distilleries in Scotland must adhere to the rules of the Scotch Whisky Association. These rules include and indicate:

  • The entire production process must occur within Scotland.
  • The product must be aged for at least three years and one day.
  • The product must be a minimum of 80 proof.

Many scotches use barley that has been dried using peat smoke, giving the whisky a natural finish. While most scotch whisky is aged in used bourbon barrels, some distillers use old sherry, wine or rum barrels for flavoring.


Scotch whisky is crafted in six distinct regions, with each incorporating its own characteristics.

  • Highlands — light-bodied with a dry finish and a slight note of saltiness
  • Speyside — sweet with some note of smoke
  • Islands — soft and sweet in its peatines
  • Islay — Peaty and smoky as well as the strongest of all
  • Lowlands — A mellow dry Scotch
  • Campbeltown — A full-bodied Scotch

Scotch comes in two varieties; single malt and blends. Single malts are made from 100-percent barley at one distillery. Blended scotch combines single malts from multiple distilleries and also incorporating an aged grain whisky to creating a new unique Scotch.


Scotch purist consider it to be best consumed straight up, but many enjoy Scotch on the rocks or Scotch and water. Adding a little water actually opens up some flavors and aromas.
