Originally used by distillery workers in the early 1900's to pilfer drams of whisky from ageing barrels.
The thieves would dip the 'dog' into the barrel, filling it with whisky before replacing the bung.
They would then hang the long, cylindrical device down the side of their trouser leg, from a rope tied to their belt to avoid being caught.
The device was named 'a dog' because it never leaves your side, and it's man's best friend.
Highland Whisky Region
The Highlands is by far the largest of all the whisky producing regions and offers you the greatest variations of style. The malts from the West Highland distilleries are much less peaty than the malts which are found in the Islay region and tend to have a sweet start and a dry finish.
The North Highland distilleries tend to make light bodied whiskies with a spicy character and a dry finish, sometimes with a trace of saltiness.
Malt whiskies from the Central, Southern and Eastern Highlands are generally fruity and sweet but not as sweet as the malts found in Speyside. They are lighter bodied and sweet and just like other Highland malts they tend to have a dry finish.

Island Whisky Region
Like Speyside the Islands are not officially a whisky region, the Islands are another subdivision of the Highlands Region.
Due to the location of the Islands distilleries their whiskies tend to have a coastal feel to them. They are slightly more peaty in character than most highland malts but it is generally softer and sweeter than their stronger cousins from Islay .

Speyside Whisky Region
Speyside is not officially a whisky region but it is generally accepted as a subdivision of the Highlands Region. Over half of all Scotland's distilleries are located in Speyside.
The huge selection of Speyside malts offer a variety of strengths and can generally be broken down into two categories, the heavy, rich sherry flavoured malts and the more complex light floral flavoured malts. Speyside malts are essentially sweet whiskies, although some can have a little peaty character with just a slight whiff of smoke.
