Douglas Laing releases sherry butt-matured Scallywag Winter Edition

Get ready for Cask Strength Winter Edition of Scallywag Speyside Malt Whisky

14 October 2020

Distiller, blender and bottler Douglas Laing & Co has unveiled a limited-edition release of its Scallyway whisky.

The Scallywag Cask Strength Winter Edition joins the Scallyway Speyside Malt Scotch Whisky and 10 Years Old in the range. Only 300 bottles will be available globally.

Matured in a combination of oloroso and Pedro Ximinéz sherry butts, the whisky is bottled at a cask strength of 52.6% ABV. Official tasting notes say to expect dark fruits, cocoa, subtle tobacco and warming winter spices.

The latest release from the Speyside malt brand carries a red and white striped scarf around the bottle neck for a fun festive twist.

Cara Laing, director at whisky at the family business, said: "We're delighted to unveil this latest innovation in the Scallyway portfolio, rounding off a year of positive growth for our Speyside malt brand.

"The Cask Strength Winter Edition combines a very fun pack with truly serious whisky. Matured exclusively in Spanish sherry casks, this big, fiesty, fruity and festive dram is the ultimate warmer for those dark, chilly winter nights."

Scallywag Winter Edition is available at specialist spirits retailers and online with a recommended price of £49.99.
