It's really fun! From the nose to the finish, change after change, although it seems a bit restless but not out of balance. In particular, the fruit acid that emerges from behind reminds me of modern Loch Lomond bottlings.
Notes from a blind tasting.
It's a shame that there are so seldom independently bottled scapas, because you miss a lot of what this malt clearly demonstrates!
... and it was smoke.
At an angle directly after pouring. Fairground sweets with pickled cucumbers. However, it calms down quite quickly, whereby the sweet and sour opposite pole remains initially. Now, however, more butterscotch with windfalls. Lightly mineralized and kind of barbeque sauce, but this clear without smoke.
After standing for a while, a lot of light-colored fruit, some pickled, a lot of fruit acid, plus honey and caramel, with movement also mineral windfalls again. The strong fruit acid is reminiscent of citrus fruits, limes and lemons. Warmth of the hand stirs him up again, the alcohol tickles his nose, cookie dough, butter, with dark caramel, again barbeque sauce, salami, a bit bizarre. Later it works medicinally, cough syrup. You could smell the shape converter for hours!
Not a boring mouth either! He begins to dance cool on the tongue, then the alcohol sets in, the mouthfeel is oily and dense. Honey and cookies at the beginning, then tart herbs followed by fruit acid and back to the cookie dough.
The finish is long, initially shaped by the cookie dough, then it dries significantly towards the back, slightly astringent. In the end, nuts, pecans and a few Brazil nuts stay in the mouth, and that almost forever.
