This fourth Scallywag release is a combination of 100 per cent sherry matured single cask single malts from Speyside; each cask has been selected for its ‘cocoa-rich’ notes.
This full-bodied dram has been bottled at 48% ABV, proudly without colouring or chill-filtration.
The series has gained traction since the inaugural bottling in 2018, and with only 3,000 bottles of the latest edition available globally. The limited edition is packaged in a gold-foiled gift tube and is expected to retail at £55.00/€64.00 from specialist retailers.
In tandem with the new launch, Scallywag has partnered with luxury chocolatier Sugarsnap to create a set of bespoke Scallywag Whisky infused chocolates, boasting decorative colourways inspired by Scallywag packaging.
Scallywag’s ‘Small Batch, Big Flavour’ ethos is said to have been ‘honoured’ throughout the entire chocolate-making process. This collaboration is set to be available on World Chocolate Day before flowing into a full month of tempting social media activity, mainly on Instagram .
Commenting on the new release, Cara Laing, director of marketing at Douglas Laing & Co, said: “We have been delighted to watch this delicious, melt-in-the-mouth limited edition release grow by popular demand since 2018. It’s a joy being able to taste and hand-select the darkest, fruitiest and most cocoa-rich Single Cask Single Malts that Speyside has to offer. This special bottling is certainly one that we have a lot of fun with year after year as we strive for chocolate perfection! We can’t wait to share more delicious details about Scallywag’s partnership with Sugarsnap on World Chocolate Day too – keep your eyes peeled on Scallywag’s social channels!”
