The Stray Dog Returns - Scallywag

It’s more or less a year ago that I first played around with Douglas Laing’s Speyside blended malt. Since Speyside is my favourite Scottish Whisky region, I really need to use this great blend more often in tasty cocktails.

Scallywag is a blended malt whisky on 46% alcohol. With casks retrieved from Macallan, Mortlach, Glenrothes, and a few more distilleries. They have a tasty combination of ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks. The color, taste and flavour of this whisky do give the impression that lots of sherry casks were used.

  • Color : Rich and dark
  • Nose : Richly spiced, vanilla, sherry, oak
  • Mouth : Strong whisky with herbs, warm red fruits, Christmas pudding and dark chocolate
  • Finish : Orange peel, apple, pear, tobacco and fruitcake

Last year I have sent the Stray Dog to the Big Apple, in a tasty variation on the Manhattan which I paired with some great cheese. It’s about time to take the next step and bring the Stray Dog back to Scotland for another variation on the Manhattan, adding even more flavours.
