The Highland region of Scotland extends from north of The Highland Line (which runs from the Clyde estuary in the west, to the River Tay in the east) all the way up to John O’Groats, and encompasses both the west and east coasts of Scotland.
This huge region has everything from exposed rugged west coast distilleries such as Oban, to the more sheltered Eastern Highland distilleries such as Glen Garioch.
An area of this size obviously has a large diversification of style and tastes to its whiskies, generally more robust than the Speyside, which really is a sub region of the Highlands, the whiskies are big and bold.
From a whif of sea breeze that the maritime whiskies Pulteney Distillery has to offer, to the spicy fruit cake flavours of Royal Lochnagar.
In this region you will find whiskies to suit most palates, vanilla, malt, fruit, heather, hints of smoke and peat, chocolate and many more flavours and aromas. All can be found amongst the distilleries of The Highlands.
