Douglas Laing’s Scallywag is created using Speyside Malts including Mortlach, Macallan and Glenrothes. Bottled at 46% and non chill-filtered, this Small Batch bottling has a distinct rich, dark colour – extracted from the many Spanish Sherry Butts used during maturation. The result is a 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.
No attention to detail has been missed in creating the Scallywag packaging. Inspired by the long line of Douglas Laing family Fox Terriers, which are renowned for being sweet yet rather mischievous dogs, it was therefore felt the Scallywag name and Fox Terrier design was most fitting for this richly spiced and deliciously sweet Speyside Vatted Malt.
