The Ten Best Scotch Whiskies

Johnnie Walker Black Label
Perfectly rounded, deep and full, this is the blended Scotch most admired by blenders. If I had to take only one whisky to a desert island, it would probably be this one.
40 per cent ABV
Price: £20.45 -
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
The prince of the Islay malts, this is deep and dark, with notes of fruitcake and sweet seaweed. A voluptuous texture and a fragrant, smoky finish. For drinking with poetry, late into the night.
43 per cent ABV
Price: £41.95 -
Talisker 10 Year Old
From the Isle of Skye, this is THE malt to accompany haggis (and many other dishes). Sweet and lightly smoky, but watch out for the chilli-pepper hit in the finish. Robert Louis Stevenson regarded Talisker as "the king of drinks".
45.8 per cent ABV
Price: £28.95 -
