The Scallywag Blended Speyside Malt Scotch Whisky is a blend of Malt Whiskies from famous Speyside distilleries, including Mortlach, Glenrothes and Macallan aged in Bourbon casks and finished in old Spanish Sherry butts. 40% of which are first fill Sherry butts which imparts really sweet, spicy character to the blend. This no age statement whisky is bottled at 46% alcohol strength, traditionally without colouring or chill-filtration. The label features a drawing a monocled Fox Terrier which is based upon the Laing Family’s single-toothed Fox Terrier called Binks. Sadly Binks, the original “Scallywag” has since passed away and all terrier duties have now been handed over to the Laing’s new terrier, Cooper.
