Region: Highland

If you're going to buy a bottle of Highland scotch – the most popular region, and arguably the most palatable – this is the one to reach for. Like many single malts, Glenmorangie does special releases every year. But its 18-year is a solid go-to that's worth the money. This complex single malt, with notes of chocolate and caramel, is completely at home in the dessert course. [$100; glenmorangie.com]
