There are many different whiskies from a number of countries and regions around the world. You could argue Scottish whiskies being the most looked at through the eye of the connoisseur, although many other countries are making whiskies that are forever becoming as popular if not greater.
The styles of whisky also vary hugely across the range from light and floral all the way through to peaty and smoky. To exemplify this the regions in Scotland such as Lowland will provide those light and floral characters, and the Islay region will promote peat. This is introduced through many ways within the process of making whisky, for example if you were to mature a Scotch single malt whisky in ex bourbon casks, the whisky will most likely take on a sweetness from the bourbon that has embedded into the cask previously, in what’s called it’s first fill. The casks can take on flavourings also when they are matured near Coastal areas, which many find very interesting and different. Whisky is a Journey, a lifetime of history and memorable experiences for all.
