  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    All the hallmarks to be a good malt, maybe just a little flat. Would benefit greatly from 46 abv. That said some nice elements and easy drinking.

      Thin, not complex, but nice flavours of honey, apricots, wispy smoke, cracked pepper, soft wax

    A very pleasant malt, easy to drink, not overly complex.
    • Nose
      Mix of light and dark fruits (ripe apples, figs and raisins). Citrus aromas (bitter orange marmalade), fruit gum, light wood, violets and honey. Very harmonious and pleasant.
    • Taste
      Honey sweetness, fruit gums, fruits, violet pastilles, fresh wood. Alcohol beats on the tongue. Harmonious and mature.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. Harmonious. Sweetness, which is then replaced by a certain dryness. Pleasant barrel notes that remain fruits.

  6. Mr.Sandwich scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      For 40% ABV he is strong. Elegant and complex for a 12 year old. Peaty sea breeze with dried fruits, barley malt and some toffee.
    • Taste
      Begins fruity and salty - very delicate. Herbs, peat and seasoning in harmony with the fruit. A slightly higher ABV would have done well for this Scapa. He still seems relatively strong and not watered down.
    • Finish
      Salty peat with fruit basket slowly fade away.

  8. Bendrachm did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    This bottle had been open for a while. A clear cardboard presence, quite some alcohol seemed evaporated (though it was only bottled at 40).

    A tender, briny smoke. Neutral honey tones, crumbly apple. Lost its power, not much else. No spice present like in HP.
