  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This was my first Scapa ever. I like it very much because of the soft saltiness it has in the finish. Sad that this whisky has been replaced by the less enjoyable 16 year old.
    • Nose
      Soft and a little sweet. Fragrant. Heathery. Herbal notes.
    • Taste
      Maltiness. Fruity tones of melon, apple and pear. Liquorice and cinnamon. Slightly spicy.
    • Finish
      Not that long. A little pepper. Later on delicate salt.

    A cool summer day after the rain!
    Orange, lemon, quince, cherry plum, banana, peach, old yellow apple, cider, green tea, honey, hay; fresh but slightly damp wood; half-baked rye bread, pastry, oatmeal cookies, glue and minerals!

  3. Jackson05 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Unsure how much of scapa ends up in blends, but it totally makes sense. Very inoffensive, soft and coastal malt with soft charm. Would work very well in a blend. Needs higher abv to shine though.

  5. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Colour: gold
    Nose: sweet, muffins, citrus, apples, plums, caramel, pears and sweet fruits.
    Mouth: sweet, citrus, oak, pepper, spices and pears.
    Finish: middle, spices, oak, vanilla, citrus and grass.
    Scapa 14 YO is a good balanced, smooth and tasty whisky.

  6. Calmar scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    The predecessor of the current 16-year-old, simple, it is possible to say primitive, watery and weakly expressive. Boring, 16-year-old came out much more interesting.
    • Nose
      Malt, lemonade, mineral tones, dry pebbles, citrus - lemon skins, lime, leather, sea salt.
    • Taste
      Malt, caramel, oak bitterness
    • Finish
      Toffee, cream, light ginger burning, boiled vegetables.
