    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!

  2. 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. 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.

      Malt, lemonade, mineral tones, dry pebbles, citrus - lemon skins, lime, leather, sea salt.
    • Taste
      Malt, caramel, oak bitterness
    • Finish
