The Lowland region comprises the southernmost third of Scotland. Lowland whiskies tend to be drier and lighter than most other Scotch whiskies. They are also very light in peat, salt and smoke as compared to whiskies from other regions. Lowland malts are dry, when compared with their Highland counterparts, and, although often quite spirity, are light whiskies with generally fewer individual differences than those of other regions.
Lowland whiskies are thought to be excellent options for "beginners."
