Scotch Flavor Map

Here is a really cool chart showing the flavors you can expect from the various brands of scotch:


Looking at the flavor map, I myself, for the most part, find it hard to disagree with what the chart depict.  Of course, individual's palate differs.  Use this as a general guide, and don't be overly bothered if you find yourself tasting something that the map says otherwise.   

Bottoms-up, my friend.
