Whisky Reviews for Scapa 1993

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.95 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    the whisky looks old and ripe in the aroma, but rather young and fresh from the mouthfeel. Without water almost a challenge. Otherwise, a great ex-bourbon barrel whisky. I'm not the Scapa connoisseur, but I'm glad to have had one in the glass.
    • Nose
      Pure closed, waxy, wood, tannins, some glue, nutmeg, gooseberries. Over time, the nose becomes fruity, bright, vanilla and a beautiful oak over everything. With water, the nose is no different, as if it is allowed to evaporate a little.
    • Taste
      pure a little strong, but already with a nice old ex-bourbon barrel, a little vanilla and a slight indefinable fruitiness. With water comes the oak a little more to the fore, but also the fruit flavors, concretely comes straight to me pear compote, also some citrus peel and clove.
    • Finish
      a lot of oak, without becoming bitter, honey, very spicy, with nice vanilla and oak flavors, also quite with a fragrant acidity.

  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    I'm not really familiar with Scapa, but I could have mistaken this one for a Bunna.
    • Nose
      Cappuccino, caramel, peach, vanilla, malt and peanut butter. With water a sweeter and fruitier with strawberry.
    • Taste
      Almond, caramel, hazelnut, apple, vanilla, strawberry and pepper. With water also apricot and honey.
    • Finish
      Almond, caramel, apple and peanut. 

  4. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A delicious and very enjoyable dram. The nose is really charming like you open a fresh Toppy Frutty mix fruit candy box!

    • Nose
      Starts with tropical fruits, creamy vanilla, subtle floral notes of heather. There is a hint of strawberry with a slight marzipan tone, mixed with oak and a dash of salt. Very appealing nose!
    • Taste
      Surprisingly very sweet with plenty of yellow ripe fruits, peach and tangerine, mixed with floral notes of heather and creamy vanilla. Hints of crispy oak in the middle of the tongue.
    • Finish
      Warm and sweet. Creamy even silky with a long juicy finish of tangerines and peaches.

      WITH WATER: This one stays sweet with a pleasant fruitiness and creamy vanilla. Gets spicier at the end.
