The Flavour

Nearly all of the taste of whisky comes from its contact with oak casks. Though every whisky has its peak maturation point, the general rule is: younger whisky has more distillery character, older whisky more cask influence. There is, however, much more to it than that.

Scotland’s blend of people, location and climate has given us some of the world’s best-loved whiskies.
