You may have focused on bourbon, played catch-up with Japanese bottlings, or centered on Canada’s big year up north. But now it’s time to look homeward to the great fatherland of whisky once more (yes, we know Ireland claims the title of father of whisky, too. Let it go).
You’re running low on time to get the best bottles of 2015, but there’s still hope. We put together a list of Scottish highlights from the Highlands and beyond, to help you get started making up for lost time.
