Scottish Whisky

Scotch Whisky

Schottischer Single Malt und Blended Whisky, auch bekannt als „Scotch“, ist eines des bekanntesten schottischen Exportprodukte und sehr eng mit der schottischen Tradition verbunden. Die Produktion des Whiskey konzentriert sich auf mehrere Gebiete, die jede für sich sehr unterschiedliche Geschmacksrichtungen und -nuancen hervorbringen. Kaum ein Volk hat den Whisky so perfektioniert wie die Schotten und wenige Orte bieten eine ähnlich außergewöhnliche Auswahl and Geschmäckern und Aromen.

Traditionell war Schottland in verschiedene Regionen aufgeteilt. In jeder dieser Regionen gab es Destillerien, die große Mengen an Whisky produzierten und so den Industriezweig voranbrachten. Diese Gebiete sind heute bekannt als Highlands, Lowlands, Campbeltown, Islands, Islay und Speyside. Schon früh konnte man die Unterschiede im Geschmack (wieder)erkennen, und auch heute noch hat jede der Regionen sehr eigene Aromen.

Highlands

Die Highlands sind die Heimat des Highland Single Malt und nicht zuletzt aufgrund der höchsten Produktionsmenge wohl die bekannteste der Regionen.
Der Whisky aus den Highlands sind sanft, warm und abgerundet. Näher an der Ostküste findet man maritime Geschmacksrichtungen, während die mittleren Highlands Honig- und Heidekraut-Aromen bieten. Auch, weil es die Whiskeyregion mit der größten geografischen Fläche und den meisten Produktionsstätten ist, ist es schwierig, genaue Charakteristika herauszustellen. Viele der Whiskys jedoch können als weich und floral und meist eher trocken bezeichnet werden.

Beispiele: Glenmorangie, Aberfeldy, Ben Nevis, Glen Ord.

Campbeltown

Auch wenn Campbeltown heutzutage keine offizielle schottische Region mehr ist, ist die Ortschaft noch immer als eine eigenständige Whiskeyregion anerkannt. Früher trug das Gebiet den Titel „Whisky Hauptstadt der Welt“, mit über 30 Destillerien, von denen heute nur noch drei übrig geblieben sind. Trotz allem sind die Whiskies aus der Region auch heute noch beliebt und geliebt für ihre Rauchigkeit und die salzigen Aromen.

Beispiele: Springbank, Glen Gyle, Glen Scotia.

Speyside

Beliebt bei Kennern sind die fruchtigen Single Malts aus Speyside. Ihre besondere Qualität verdanken sie der besonders aufwändigen Verarbeitung und dem langen Reifeprozess in Sherryfässern.
Obwohl Speyside geografisch gesehen ein Teil der Highlands ist, unterscheiden sich die Whiskys aus dieser Region doch deutlich von den klassischen Highland-Whiskys. Sie sind typischerweise sehr fruchtig und zart, mit dem Aroma frischer Früchte und Vanille, deren Geschmäcker mit zunehmender Reife des Whiskys noch exquisiter werden.

Beispiele: Glenfiddich, Macallan and Balvenie.

The Islands (Islay)

Die kleine Insel Islay, mit nur knapp über 3.000 Einwohnern, findet man acht Whiskeydestillerien. Dies beweist, wie groß die Leidenschaft für Whiskey in dieser Region ist. Der Islay-Whisky ist besonders außergewöhnlich, schwer, rauchig und mächtig, mit besonders ausgeprägten maritimen Aromen.

Beispiele: Bruichladdich, Kilchoman, Bowmore, Laphroaig.

Lowlands

Die leichteren Whiskeys aus den Lowlands unterscheiden sich insbesondere durch ihre frischen, floralen und fruchtigen Aromen. Sie erinnern an windige Landschaften mit grünen Hügeln: leicht, duftend und frisch und ein starker Kontrast zu den schweren Highland Whiskys. Genau wie in Campbeltown gibt es hier heutzutage nur noch drei aktive Destillerien, deren Produkte jedoch nicht an Popularität eingebüßt haben.

Beispiele: Auchentoshan, Bladnoch, Glenkinchie.
