Region: Speyside

Speyside is Scotland's sweet spot, surrounded by the broader Highland region, for brilliant but pricey whisky. The region produces smoother, softer, and in general, sweeter single malts like Glenrothes, an excellent label within this category. Our favorite is the 1995, which might as well be a drinkable dessert. [$100; theglenrothes.com]
