    Perfume, fresh, intense honey and citrusy, whiff of sharpness but
    packed with a lot of charming fruits and sweet bubble gum candy.
    Leather undertone with drips of water.

    P- Consistent from the
    nose, honey and citrus greets you with lightness, crisp apple,
    grapefruits and burnt orange peels. Water does enhance the texture, got
    creamier and milky chocolate.

    F- Medium long, fresh and light. Smooth follow by spicy coating and touch of bitter orange.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    there are hints of salt and the oily nose and taste I expected from Scapa. some spices a Little bit grassy. but still, there was also too much sweetness, to much perfume.

    Here, seafood meets good maturity. An excellent Firstfill Ex-Bourbon barrel. For me an absolute dream
    • Nose
      William Christ pear, juicy and ripe, lying in a basket of lemon balm. I doze on the beach and enjoy the salty sea breeze mixed with a Werther's Real Sweet. So I want to linger forever and put my nose into this bouquet again and again. If he stands awhile, creamy banana, vanilla ice cream and cream are added.
    • Taste
      Oily, the whisky slides over the tongue, immediately there is this harsh honey sweetness, some white pepper tickles the buds of the tip of the tongue, a little orange and vineyard peach joins the pear. At the very back the salty oak knocks and the saliva thins the whisky
    • Finish
      The fruit remains warm and honey-sweet for a while, until the spring-fresh young oak buds claim their right to dry themselves on the taste buds.

    The Scapa 2001 / 2015 was distilled at a time when the distillery was run by the staff from Highland Park, albeit only a few weeks per year.
