The Ultimate Single Malt Whisky Flavor Map [Infographic]

Single Malt Scotch can be incredibly confusing. With different regions and styles it can be hard to find a Scotch you like. And once you do, it’s still difficult to find other Scotches with a similar profile. Just because a Scotch is made in the same region as the one you like does not mean it is guaranteed to be made the same way. That’s where flavor maps come in. By mapping where each Scotch falls on a spectrum of flavors, you’re able to see how that Scotch compares to others and find the perfect whiskys to fit the flavor profile you’re after, whether that flavor is smoky, delicate, light, or rich. You’re going to want to print this out and hang it over your bar, trust us.
