This limited edition whisky was released in May 2018 and is one of several bottlings released by Douglas Laing & Co. marking the 70th anniversary of the brand. Scallywag is named for the family’s Fox Terrier whose face appears on the packaging. This is a vatting of Speyside single malts aged entirely in ex-sherry casks. Aged 10 years (70 in dog years), it is bottled un-chillfiltered and without added color.

Tasting Notes

"The nose gives plenty of sweetness—lots of cotton candy and brown sugar. A good amount of honey too. The palate has a very sweet arrival, which is a further testament to the sherry maturation. Milk chocolate, but also plenty of spices which linger for a long while. A very proper, rich blended malt whisky."
