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.
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. In fact, we use 40% first-fill Sherry butts in the mix, and 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.
