Scallywag Blended Speyside Malt Whisky
70cl, 46% abv
Scallywag Blended Speyside Malt Whisky is a small batch bottling from Douglas Laing created using only the finest Speyside Malts including (amongst others) Mortlach, Macallan and Glenrothes. Bottled at 46% alcohol strength and non chill-filtered, this small batch bottling has a distinct rich, dark colour which is extracted from the many fine Spanish sherry butts used during the maturation process. The result is a truly charming malt with a richly spiced character, fused with vanilla (from the bourbon casks), sweet stewed fruit, Christmas pudding, dark chocolate, zesty orange and sweet tobacco. Inspired by the long line of Douglas Laing family Fox Terriers, which are renowned for being sweet, yet rather mischievous dogs, it was felt the Scallywag name and Fox Terrier design was most fitting for this richly spiced and deliciously sweet Speyside Vatted Malt Whisky.
