Independent Scotch Whisky firm, Douglas Laing & Co. today unveils Scallywag “The Chocolate Edition” #2 Speyside Malt ahead of World Chocolate Day on the 7th of July 2019, exclusively for DouglasLaing.com.
Matured predominantly in Spanish Sherry Butts for 10 Years, the resulting 2009 Vintage Whisky is said to hold within distinct tasting notes of melted milk chocolate, dark treacle and rich stewed fruits. With only 500 bottles available from Sunday 7th July, the hotly-anticipated release is expected to be met with high demand following the sell-out success of the first edition from the previous year.
Each bottle will bear a gold foiled label featuring the familiar Scallywag Fox Terrier upon a background of mouth-watering melted chocolate and be presented in a black printed gift bag. In line with the Douglas Laing philosophy to bottle Scotch Whisky “as natural as it gets”, this release is offered at a high alcohol strength of 48%, aged for 10 years and proudly without chill-filtration.
Chris Leggat, CEO of Douglas Laing & Co. said,
Since the launch of Scallywag “The Chocolate Edition” in 2018, we have been inundated with requests for more! Edition number two features a unique marriage of heavily Sherried Single Malts from some Speyside’s finest distilleries, specially selected for their indulgently cocoa-rich qualities. We had great fun and spent hours perfecting this product. The result is a seriously moreish dram and a great example of why blending Single Malts is really special.
Scallywag “The Chocolate Edition” #2 will available on DouglasLaing.com from 11am on Sunday, the 7th of July, 2019.
