If you're looking for a drink that is sophisticated and fierce, traditional and luxurious at the same time, indubitably, the right choice is Scotch whiskey, and if you’re looking for the best ones, read our list of top Scotch Whiskies and make your choice. Scotland is the world's best known producer of whiskies, which produces about 200 different types of whiskey or "water of life" as it is called by Scotland’s inhabitants. There are two types of Scotch whiskies: a Single Malt – the clean one, not mixed with other ingredients and made in only one distillery, Blends- the ones that are mixtures of different malts, from more distilleries. Some whiskies are drank in the evening, or at the end of the day before going to bed, the others as an aperitif. Selecting the best 10 was a very difficult task, but we hope we succeed.
