  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Part of a scapa tasting that included 9 scapas... yes we managed to find 9. This one was the weakest to me; although it’s nothing bad. It has good flavours, they are all just weakly delivered. Probably a good introductory malt.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Pear, white pepper, brine, wool
    • Taste
      81 81
      Pretty nice mouthfeel on soft wax, soft pepper, heather, a little salt
    • Finish
      82 82
      Salty, lemon zest, cold ash, pear.

    • Nose
      Delicate, solid, initially closed, gradually opening up. Floral motifs, malt, rain freshness, light fragrance, cotton candy, dried condensed milk, vanilla, freshly sawn board, wet cardboard, ascorbic acid, dry grass, barely noticeable mineral notes, sweet pastries. 23
    • Taste
      Medium, moderately sweet. Oak tannins, black pepper, mineral water, pastry dough, fresh fruit - red apples, apricot, barely noticeable sulfur content, sugar syrup, crumb of gray bread, a little salt. Toward the end of the dram from somewhere there is a very light smoke. 22
    • Finish
      Short, smoothly fading, tannin, mineral. nineteen
      Very interesting nose, pleasant taste and almost disappointing finish. At the same time whisky is very light and drinkable. Balance - 22.

    The Scapa 16 years - a good Orcadian Malt; with 40% maybe a little weak on the chest!
    • Nose
      light, mild, sweet (honey), fruity (apples), malt;
    • Taste
      first fruity (apples, pears), then spicy (pepper, ginger, oak), oily, creamy, slightly dry;
    • Finish
      a long, oily finish, in the aftermath salty note;

  10. ottos scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Wonderfully soft and well-balanced dram, but as so many others mentioned, on the skimpy side at 40% ABV
    • Nose
      Very light and fresh, some apple, honey, wax, hints of dried fruit (abricot, guave?)
    • Taste
      A little marzipan, apple cider, some citrus in the back. A little waxy mouthfeel
    • Finish
      Slightly spicy, bitter (nuts), a bit of caramel.
