Using the Flavour Map

On the vertical axis whiskies are plotted as how smoky they are [the flavours which come principally from the peat used in drying the barley, which all Single Malts are made from] or how delicate they are [whiskies which contain unpeated barley and have no peat-smoke flavours].

On the horizontal axis whiskies are plotted as how light they are [whiskies with fresh flavours such as green grass, fresh fruits and barley] or how rich [flavours ranging from vanilla and nuttiness to cigar box, chocolate and dried fruit].
