Source: The Single Malt Scotch Whisky Flavour Map [The flavour map can be downloaded as a PDF from here]
The Flavour Map will help you choose a single malt whisky based on its taste. Developed by some of Scotland's most experienced professionals, the map demonstrates that – when it comes to flavour in a glass of whisky – all single malts can be plotted on a simple grid.
Ooh, lovely. Quite surprising how varied my tastes are, apparently - love Laphroaig from the top left (albeit it needs a splash of water to my tongue, improves it immeasurably) and Glenlivet 18yo from the opposite corner, as well as a few inbetween. Now I know what others to buy to make sure I have a good variety to hand
Sadly these are only Diageo whiskies - so if you don't see your favourite on there, that's probably it. Still, as @sonofsanta alludes to, you can find plenty of variety in there. Have tried ~20 of those and 4 of the 8 on my shelf are there
My favourite is Cragganmore, at least for the moment...
