Douglas Laing’s – Scallywag (70cl @ 46% ABV)
Douglas Laing’s Scallywag is a Small Batch bottling 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 – extracted from the many fine Spanish Sherry Butts used during maturation. The result is a truly charming Malt with a richly spiced character, fused with vanilla (from the bourbon casks used), sweet stewed fruit, Christmas pudding, dark chocolate, zesty orange and sweet tobacco.
Sweetly spiced character woven onto delicious vanilla on the nose. The palate displays sweet stewed fruit, Christmas pudding, dark chocolate and spices. A zesty orange finish that features hints of sweet tobacco, cocoa and rich fruit cake.
