Generally, whiskies from this region are light in colour and weight and typically have a dry finish. Their aromatic intensity is low, and tends to be grassy, green or herbal, with grainy and floral notes. They tend to use a very lightly peated malt which gives a sweetness to the overall mouthfeel and flavour. Lowland malts are regarded by many as an excellent aperitif. However, the Society often bottles exceptions to the rule so be sure to read your tasting notes carefully.
