The spring-into-summer period of the year is a wonderful time, what with everything blossoming (plants and ladies, if you know what I mean) and the chill of winter rapidly becoming a distant memory.
In that light, I voted Lowland, as I really appreciate the delicate complexity of many of the malts of this region around this part of the year. Of course, when the long, hot days of summer arrive, I'll also settle down with lots of Bourbon or Canadian whisky, be it on the rocks or poured as a long drink.
Sorry... Got diverted there for an instant.
Lowlands? Rosebank, for sure. Simply beautiful. All the better if its a cask strength version. And Bladnoch, with its deft melding of sticky citrus sweetness and breadth of floral overtones, definitely strikes the spring-summer 'bell-tones' perfectly. Once again, the higher the proof, the better. Love the 17-year old 55%ABV releases from the distillery last year.
