Scallywag Bottling Note

Big Peat's gone and got himself a trusty sidekick in the shape of a dapper Fox Terrier wearing a monocle! Scallywag from Douglas Laing is a vatted malt made from Speyside whiskies, including Mortlach, Macallan and Glenrothes. Many of the whiskies used in the small batch release come from Spanish sherry butts, giving Scallywag a fab sweetness that's balanced by some "mischievous" bourbon cask whisky also in the blend.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Sweetness jumps up like an excited puppy. Icing sugar, sultanas and candied ginger. A few hints of grain here and there, but sweetness steals the show.

Palate: The sweetness surprisingly retreats, 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.

Scallywag Reviews


Delighted you are now stocking this beauty of a Malt Whisky. It’s a wonderfully balanced Malt with a sweet, cereal quality with chocolate and sherry. It’s pretty special and highly recommended

Superb, gorgeous.

I cannot believe that this is not at least twice the price, more even. Superb, gorgeous. The nose is transfixing, I linger over it; there is a lot of taste exploration. I preferred it over the 10 year old Scallywag, which surprised me.

A Delicious Dram

I generally prefer the peat monsters, but have been spreading my whisky wings during lockdown, trying to educate my jaded palate. This is just a lovely dram. Goes down a treat. Maybe I'm being influenced by the era evoked by the label, but this feels like a quality dram from simpler times...and none the worse for that. Just delicious. I hope my local will stock this when we can return to the pubs!

A nice surprise

Bought on impulse and much better than expected. Raisin and fruit, sherry, spices. It's Christmas cake in a glass.

Not a favourite

I was very disappointed with Scallywag,I honestly think it's one of the worst whiskies I've ever had the misfortune to taste,I don't know about sweetness,I got mine of that on the contrary I got a bitter aftertaste.I actually got an aroma of chocolate biscuits.

It is on the young side and the flavours could be more obvious BUT !

Initial thoughts were that this was a bit young with little character but when I got into it I began to pick up the subtle flavours including cinnamon and vanilla.
