A limited-edition 12-year-old expression of Douglas Laing’s Scallywag blended malt, marrying Speyside whiskies that have been matured in oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. Aromas of sherry, cherry jam, dark berries, treacle and baking spices fill the nose. The palate offers notes of treacle, honey, vanilla, barley sugar and toasted oak, with jammy blackberries.
Nose: A good hit of sherry, with dark cherry jam, dark berries and treacle, with a hefty sprinkling of baking spices.
Palate: Sweet and rich, more rich treacle, sweet, almost honeyed vanilla cream, barley sugar and toasted oak among lots of jammy blackberries.
Finish: The fruity, sweet palate continues onto the finish, with even more spicy notes building, lots of cinnamon and allspice remaining.
