Premium whisky merchant Duncan Taylor has created a Christmas gift pack to give whisky lovers a chance to sample tipples from Scotland's best known whisky regions.

The Regional Blended Malt Whisky Collection contains blends designed to capture the aromas and flavours of three key regions, according to the producer. Speyside is described as "rich and fruity", Highland as "robust" and Islay as "very peaty". The gift set of three 20cl bottles, priced at £21, includes a map of Scotland and a tasting sheet.

Each of the variants is also available in single 70cl bottles, priced at £17.

"Duncan Taylor has a reputation for fine whiskies and these blended malts provide a real insight into the unique character of each region," said managing director Euan Shand.

The whisky producer, based in Aberdeenshire, is known for owning one of the largest privately-held collections of rare Scotch whisky casks.
