Scallywag - Speyside Blended Malt by Douglas Laing
Scallywag is a small batch blended whisky, composed of the finest Speyside Malts - Macallan, Mortlach and Glenrothes. Bottled at 46% ABV this specialist bottling has a distinctly rich, dark colour and charmingly sherried flavour with notes of vanilla, dark chocolate and zesty orange.
Nose: Sweet sugar, sultanas and candied ginger.
Palate: Not as sweet as the nose hints, revealing nutmeg and cereal. Vanilla comes in near the end. Cinnamon too, giving it a prickle of spice.
Finish: A pinch of oak spice joins the vanilla and sherry for the finish.
Overall: Incredibly pleasant, the Scallywag is an absolute treat in every sense.
