25 Popular Scotch Whiskies, Ranked
25. Buchanan’s DeLuxe
This Scotch isn’t sold in Scotland or in the U.K., but it’s popular in Latin America. It’s a blend of malt and grain whiskies, resulting in a velvety texture.
The taste is an impressive contrast of sweet notes such as honey and gentle spice. A subtle peat smoke helps ground the blend and makes it appealing for connoisseurs and newcomers.
24. The Singleton 12-Year
As a whisky owned by the beverage giant Diageo, this Speyside Scotch has a light golden hue, which translates to a taste that's fresh fruitiness.
Those fruits continue to the palate, but the whisky has a surprising kick along with its sweeter tones. The finish is smooth, with a mouthfeel that is a little creamy.
23. Dewar’s 12-Year
The 12-Year is Dewar's first permanent whisky. A combination of malt and grain whiskies, it has a smooth feel and features vanilla prominently on the palate.
Added with some citrus and dried fruit, it provides a satisfying tasting experience. While the taste doesn't linger for too long, it has an affordable price tag.
22. Chivas Regal 12-Year
Favored by Queen Victoria, this is a great example of a blended whisky. The nose has a lovely herbal undertone, offering a unique palette.
Along with the herbs hinted at with the nose, it offers a combination of honey and orchard fruits. The finish is long enough, but it doesn't live up to its famous reputation.
21. The Glenlivet 12-Year
This single malt Scotch from the Speyside region is clean and clear. The nose gives a fresh burst of aromas before they are showcased on the palate.
It displays an impressive range of fruits, such as apples, pears, and citrus, along with floral notes. The finish is clean but does give you some warmth with some lingering spice.
