Speyside is the region of Scotland near the river Spey in Eastern Scotland (technically it is part of the Highlands but there are so many distilleries in Speyside that it is usually considered a distinct region). The majority of Scotch Whisky distilleries are located in this area. Speyside malt whiskies usually have a complex flavor with the peat and smoke flavors less pronounced than whisky from Islay or the rest of the Highlands.

Some good Speyside whiskies include: Knockando, Aberlour and Glenlivet.
