  1. Lorion scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    A weak nose is followed by a fine, but extremely tasty palate. 79 points.
    • Nose
      Behavior in the nose. Thin oak, woody herbs. A hint of sweet vanilla comes out subtly, but it takes a while. A little unripe banana.
    • Taste
      Vanilla and aromatic oak, spicy tobacco. Creamy, sweet and tasty. Bananas. Really good! A pleasant bitterness remains in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Medium to short. Tobacco and vanilla.

    1630) Scapa, 2005/2019, 13YO, Distillery Labels, Gordon & Macphail
    • Nose
      N- Have tried quite a few of this DL series, the best is still the 2001/2015, probably a bit bias as that is my first Scapa from GM. Sweet spices meets crushed leaf that sooth the moods instantly, whispering dram that offers rum-ish sweet tonic, soft tropical fruits and natural earth smokes at the backdrop with creamy vanilla, dried plums and oak spices. (86/20)
    • Taste
      P- Sour fruits shines with fresh pipe smokes, tobacco and cloves. Wood shaves are apparent at the middle, although not exactly like sucking on the wood but appeared edgy. (85/19)
    • Finish
      F- Medium, warm spices, herbs with a pinch of salt with crisp and dryness. (86/20)

      B/B- 86/20 Plenty of 2nd or 3rd filled in this vat with casks that breathing the last breath.

      Weighted Rate- 79pt

  8. vlad78 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I have the feeling that this infusion of the pear more than the whisky.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Pear jam. Good pear jam. Warm jam. A bit of broth of lime.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The taste is sweet, with rising bitterness. It's like you're eating a sweet Apple and you've got a seed that gives you bitterness.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The aftertaste is warm, sweet, and pleasant.

    A Scapa from 2005, First Fill Bourbon Barrels from the independent bottler G&M, light yellow and with 43% vol.
    In short: my case is not him.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Somewhat sour, then hay, herbs and mint come. Overall a bit out of round.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Strong, peppery, sharp and inharmonic. Cooling mint.
    • Finish
      78 78
      Rather short, sharp, herbaceous.

    • Nose
      70 70
      Fig liquor, malt and minerals in the nose. Not a good distillate.
    • Taste
      79 79
      In the taste some sweeter bourbon influences come out, so that's more enjoyable. Spicy and malty too.
    • Finish
      75 75
      The finish goes back to the spirit character with nuts and dough.
