Anticipate dark chocolate woven together with stewed fruits, sweet spices & orange zest Good things come in small packages. Take our Scallywag here. The latest in a long line of Douglas Laing family fox terriers, the cheeky wee rascal (Scallywag) with his one remaining front tooth is a lively & full of character as they come. Name after him, this small batch release is a blend of the finest speyside malts - including, amongst others, those distilled at Mortlach, Macallan & Glenrothes distilleries - with a sweetly spices warmth at its heart. Our Scallywag has a rich, dark colour - extracted from the many fine Spanish sherry butts selected. It carries a richly spiced character on the nose woven into delicious vanilla from the bourbon hogsheads selected. On the palate detect layer on layer of sweet stewed fruit, Christmas pudding & dark chocolate fused with spice (nutmeg & cinnamon) much of which can be attributed to years slumbering in those sherry butts. The finish displays a burst of zesty orange with sweet tobacco, cocoa & rich fruit cake.
