  1. Maltlife scored this whisky 78 points Member Senior

    A 5cl miniature was tasted. Nothing exciting, for the invoked price a down-to-earth blend, which requires no appreciable mindfulness.
    • Nose
      79 79
      Sweet notes of fruit and vanilla, ripe light fruits, some milk chocolate, some honey, smooth and straightforward, little complexity, overall in context quite pleasant and very easy to develop.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Juvenile, fruit and honey sweetness, again some chocolate and vanilla, flattens off flavourful taste, has nothing to offer charming, also here demands very little. After a while in the glass, it seems slightly watery.
    • Finish
      77 77
      In short, hardly available and not worth mentioning.

    The third time I tried "Scallywag" and it is still very competitive for me. Fresh and fruity with deep flavor and good tasting. Finish is quite stable and delicious.

    a solid blended malt, a hint of complexity recognizable, has a lot of potential, with more age it will probably be a very good blended malt
    • Nose
      fruity, sweetish, malty, honey, orange, oak, spices, rather subtle and restrained
    • Taste
      powerful onset, oak and spices are clearly in the foreground, fruit flavors are barely present or only very slightly pronounced, retains throughout a powerful mouth-filling and very present character
    • Finish
      mid-length spicy finish;
      short vigorous aftertaste with clear oak (in particular, it works a bit "sharper" here)

    [Color] honey;
    • Nose
      fruity (peach, orange), malty, honey, spices, oak;
    • Taste
      pleasantly fruity, powerful, saffron oranges, sherry aromas, spices, oak, obvious youth;
    • Finish
      rather short, first fruity, then peppery pungency; in the finish oak;

    Nose with notes of flowers, fruits, cream, buttermilk, honey, barley malt. After tasting vanilla flavor appears. Taste adds spicy nutmeg and pepper notes. Finish echoes taste with deep spicy finish.
