    http://www.weinkenner.de/2015/drei-alte-scapa-von-den-orkney-inseln-37405/ Color: pale gold
    Nose: Summer feeling - light, flowery, fresh and only slightly spiced. But dull notes of leather, humus soil, green moss and wet cardboard and lime slices. More and more budding, green aromas of honeydew melon and cucumber. The sweet portion is enhanced by notes from Persipan.
    Taste: Thin, salty and quite quickly bitter with vanilla added. Wood notes spread quite quickly, and the taste is deteriorating rapidly. A salty-kräutrige freshness remains at the transition to the finish.
    Finish: Long - dry, bitter and with fresh wooded herb notes. Although oily and creamy, but only with rather inappropriate flavors.
    Remark: Very multifaceted after a few minutes, but simply very inharmonious. The nose, however, fits!
    82 points (nose: 88 / taste: 75 / finish: 82)
