To help you explore our wide range of Scottish malts, we've categorised them into the four taste profiles shown. First of all decide which one's for you, then take a look at the flavour wheel below to find whiskies to suit your particular palate.
Once you've identified your favourite flavour profile, this wheel will help you find single malt whiskies to match. Or you can have some fun exploring new styles you haven’t tried before. The closer the whisky is located to one of five characteristics on the wheel, the more of that characteristic it will have.
