Douglas Laing klar med Scallywag CS Batch 2

Douglas Laing lancerede Scallywag Cask Strength sidste sommer og nu er de klar med batch 2.

Scallywag Cask Strength Batch 2Scallywag er en blended malt fra Speyside med single malt whisky fra blandt andet Mortlach, Macallan og Glenrothes. Der brugt en blanding af sherry butts og bourbon hogsheads. I modsætning til den almindelige udgave, som er på 46%, så er denne på 54,1% og den er naturligvis ikke koldfiltreret eller farvet.

Officielle smagsnoter fra destilleriet:

Nose: It carries a rich, orange marmalade character, complemented by cinnamon and warm ginger.

Palate: On the big, chewy palate, detect warmingly spiced apple and rhubarb crumble, with a distinct coffee note. Vanilla from our specially selected bourbon hogshead casks becomes apparent too, alongside a sweet raisin and fudge quality.

Finish: The long and fruity finish displays dark chocolate and toasted oaks against a sweet and juicy backdrop.

Fred Laing, Managing Director hos Douglas Laing udtaler:

Recently awarded “Brand Innovators of the Year 2016” at the World Whiskies Awards, we at Douglas Laing & Co continually strive to be leaders of the pack in creative packaging and seek to fill an even greater spirit into the bottle. I believe this latest all-Speyside Cask Strength canine creation doggedly embodies that philosophy by combining a very fun pack with a seriously good quality Whisky, not to be sniffed at. The vatting created for Scallywag Cask Strength #2 combines some really fructiferously-spiced Spanish Sherry Butts with specially selected vanilla driven bourbon hogsheads, and proves, though I may say so myself, that there’s life in the old dog yet!

Denne batch er på i alt 4.800 flasker, som allerede er tilgængelig via Douglas Laings webshop og den lander i butikkerne inden længe. Prisen ligger omkring de £50 eller lige omkring 500 kroner.
