Scallywag Blended Malt Scotch Whisky. Image courtesy Douglas Laing & Co.This blended malt has an aromatic and spicy nose with hints of mild clove, nutmeg, and vanilla balanced by tree fruits,  butterscotch, and a hint of dried flowers. The taste is thick and chewy at first, followed by a spicy and tart burst of lemon pepper and mild clove along with vanilla, honey, and a subtle touch of mint. The finish is dry, tart, and spicy with lemon pepper, clove, and a soft touch of honey. Very well-balanced and nice. (April, 2014)
