  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!

  8. 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!
