The Scallywag Douglas Laing Small Batch Release is inspired by Douglas Laing's fox terrier. Fox terriers are known for being sweet and rather mischievous dogs. The design of this bottle highlights this background idea. And Scallywag also means 'little rascal'. This Speyside vatted malt is the big and more mature brother of the Douglas Laing Scallywag Small Batch Release. An exclusive 12-year maturation in sherry butts makes this Speysider a spicy, dark and fruity malt. 2018 marks Douglas Laing's 70th anniversary, to honour this the Scallywag 10 Years Old Limited Edition has been created. As 10 human years is 70 dog years, this is an appropriate age for a Fox Terrier friend. The bottling is done without cold filtration as well as no added colorants.
