5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.31 points

  1. GlasMost scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Not every malt was better then. The Scapa 14 tastes like a "decent" blend (actually the old Dewars 18 is similar imho) from these days. Boring nose. Hardly any developmet in the mouth. To week and too much oak. Very unpleasant and bitter aftertaste. Skip it! The discontinued 16 is little better. I had the 12yo years ago and liked it more.
    The bottle and tube are nice and remind me of the good old days.

  2. Ostap scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Cute, but unpretentious, impersonal whisky in the style of Highland. The aroma is better than the following components, the aftertaste is obsessive bitterness.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Quiet, fresh, salty and slightly mineral, raisins, yellow apple, orange peel, candied fruit, sea notes, candy "Duchess" (pear and apple nuances), floral-honey, non-alcoholic.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Fresh, orange or tangerine, juicy sweet, bitter, herbal, spices, oak with vanilla, fresh.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Warm, dry, sweet to stickiness, fresh and short, biting, oak bitter.
