If you like whisky sure you have heard of the Highlands. This region of Scotland can be proud for having the highest concentration of distilleries together with Speyside. Single malt or blended are the two main types of whisky to be found in this region, although there are other varieties such as blended malt or grain, which however, are not as widespread as the first.
Why Highlands? Highland whisky does not really bring a special kind of features that contribute to homogenize the production. Moreover, whisky connoisseurs, those who are used to taste different brands, origins, vintages, etc. are probably well aware that the designation of origin may be something rather according to geographic criteria than to other characteristics in this particular case.
