  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 83 points Super Administrator

    Our little Shiba Inu Akito (秋登) moved in last week, so Douglas Laing's Scallywag was the obvious choice to mark the occasion. Hailing from Speyside, the aroma accentuates orange blossom, pears and vanilla cream. Christmas spices, brown sugar and peach emerge. On the palate, boiled fruits, nutmeg and dark chocolate are interwoven with lemon zest, eucalyptus drops and roasted coffee. Cereal notes, fruit cake and spearmint migrate into the lasting and slightly astringent finish. This dram is like a well-behaved puppy with a charming tail wiggle!

    Tasted on 11-07-2020 in Rommerskirchen.

  6. coldsun scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The 4th time I try this whisky and it still fine for me. Rich and bold with notes of sherry, berries, black currant, barley malt, lemon and sweet citruces with classy warming malt and citric cut.

    Lots of honey on the nose and slightly sour sherry, is that the Macallan? :-) In the mouth amazingly powerful, orange juice, malt and cereals. Even the finish lasts a long time. Nice pure too!

  9. Maltlife scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    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.

  10. coldsun scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    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.
