Scallywag 12 Year Cask Strength
Scallywag // Speyside, Scotland
Scallywag still features Master Blender Fred Laing's beloved Fox Terrier, and this is the first age stated edition that is also bottled at cask strength. Scallywag is the Speyside blended malt of Douglas Laing's Remarkable Regional Malts range. It matured entirely in oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks, and was launched in mid-2019.

"Scallywag 12 Year Cask Strength is a pleasing whisky with notes of rose petals, elderflower and raspberry, but overall the nose is a tad shy. On comparison the palate is much more expressive. A great viscosity is followed by an intense sweetness, and then even a touch of gunpowder. Plenty of hot spices too. Inviting, yet at times intense."
