A well-tuned orchestra.

Douglas Laing & Co. was founded in 1948 by none other than Douglas Laing, and is now run by his two sons. They specialize in the finest craft Scotch Whisky stocks from all over Scotland and bottle them without coloring or chill-filtration, establishing themselves as the go-to guys when it comes to high-quality blended malt Whisky.

Their Scallywag is a Small Batch Whisky created exclusively from single malts of the Speyside region – which is in fact home to the majority of Scottish distilleries. The malts used in Scallywag include Mortlach, Macallan, Inchgower and Glenrothes, and many of these Whiskies are matured in ex-Sherry Butts, giving the richly spiced Scallywag its dark color and Sherry sweetness. Douglas Laing & Co. will tell you that if a single malt is a violin, then a blended malt is the whole orchestra – and this one is definitely well-tuned.

Smartass corner: Chill-filtration is a procedure that removes chemical compounds such as esters, proteins and acids from the Whisky by cooling it to approximately zero degrees Celsius, causing the compounds to precipitate out of the Whisky and trapping them in a filter. While some consider these compounds impurities (or simply unpleasant to the eye), purists, however, insists that removing them also removes additional flavor and texture.

Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
