Scallywag Chocolate Edition 4

2nd July 2021
Douglas Laing unveil the 4th annual release of their Scallywag Chocolate Edition.

Scallywag Chocolate Edition 4Just in time for World Chocolate Day on 7th July Douglas Laing has unveiled the next instalment of their big rich sherried Speyside dram, Scallywag Chocolate Edition 4.

This fourth annual release of Scallywag Chocolate Edition blended malt whisky like its predecessors is a marriage of 100% Sherry matured Single Cask Single Malts only from Speyside. Each cask is said to have been hand-selected for its "cocoa-rich tasting notes". The resulting spirit unveils a "natural burnt sienna colour" with delectable notes of "creamy chocolate icing, juicy dates and rich red fruits". As you would expect from Douglas Laing the full-bodied dram has been bottled without colouring or chill-filtration at a strength of 48% ABV.

There will be 3,000 bottles of the Scallywag Chocolate Edition 4 available worldwide, the  limited edition is packaged in a premium, gold-foiled gift tube and is expected to retail at £55.00/€64.00.

In tandem with the new launch, Douglas Laing has partnered with Glasgow based luxury Chocolatier – Sugarsnap – to create a set of bespoke Scallywag Whisky infused chocolates boasting decorative colourways inspired by Scallywag packaging. The partnership is set to elevate Scallywag’s positioning as "the ultimate chocolate companion" by showcasing how first, the chocolate inspired the Whisky, and now, how the Whisky has come full circle to inspire the chocolate. Scallywag’s “Small Batch, Big Flavour” ethos is said to have been “honoured” throughout the entire chocolate-making process. This mouth-watering collaboration is set to be dripped out on World Chocolate Day (Wednesday 7th July) before flowing into a full month of tempting social media activity, mainly on Instagram (@scallywagwhisky).

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!"

The new Douglas Laing Scallywag Chocolate Edition 4 will be available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
