A Flavour of Single Malt Scotch Whisky

by Professor David Thomson – MMR Research Worldwide & Annandale Distillery


Why does Single Malt Scotch Whisky ‘taste’ the way it does?
Where does the flavour come from?
Why is it so popular worldwide?

Learn how a distillery and a brand were built from scratch around target flavour profiles for peated and unpeated Single Malts……with a wee dram of Rabbie Burns stirred-in for good measure.

David Thomson Professor David Thomson is Founder and Chairman of MMR Research Worldwide, the largest privately owned market research company in the World.

The couple also own The Globe Inn, Dumfries, Scotland, built in 1610 and famously known as Burns’ Howff because of its close association with Robert Burns, Scotland’s national bard.
