The Scallywag Chocolate Edition #5 is a special release marking the 5th annual chocolate bottling from the brand. The bottling name comes to the decision to choose the “most chocolaty” malts, the Sherry Speyside Single Malts, stated the brand.
Chris Leggat, CEO, said: “It’s been great to watch the momentum and demand for Scallywag’s Chocolate bottling ramp up year after year, from our initial 300 bottle release back in 2018, to our now 3,600 bottle fifth annual release. As a company we strive for continual improvement and Scotch Whisky perfection – and I have to say this year’s Scallywag Chocolate expression, with its striking fully bespoke packaging and incredibly indulgent liquid quality – comes pretty close to our ambitious objective. We have great fun selecting the most cocoa-rich Single Cask Single Malts that Speyside has to offer and refining the recipe thereafter, demonstrating why blending is an extremely skilled art form in its own right.”
Back in 2013, the first Scallywag was launched, made from a blend of Speyside Single Cask Single Malts, which included Mortlach, Macallan, and Glenrothes.
The Scallywag Chocolate Edition #5 is limited to just 3.600 bottles and bottled at 48% ABV (96 proof) without colouring or chill filtration. The suggested retail price will be around €65 ($ 70).
