  1. Goethe scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Great Scapa from the distillery, very herbal and coastal.Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10
    • Nose
      Yellow fruits (citrus, apples, some pears, pineapple), very tropical, caramel, vanilla, hints of smoke, salt, herbs.
    • Taste
      Yellow fruits, tropical fruits, caramel, vanilla, more herbs, salty, some pepper.
    • Finish
      Long. Fruits, vanilla, a lot of herbs, some smoke and oak.

  2. WhiskyMonster scored this whisky 66 points Member Senior

    Tropical fruits and sweet eucalyptus dominates the powerful nose, little room for any oak (some bourbonesque virgin-oak notes present however). Initial taste is hard to pin down as at this strength it doesn't want to stay put. After calming down with some water it gives a bit more, hints of dry toast but little more than expected from the nose. Finish is much more impressive, with a layer of smouldering pineapple. Nice understated design with the muted label and smaller bottle.

    Color: ... not worth mentioning, some gins are darker, but no matter ... I know straw yellow ...

    Nose: ... first alcohol, the baby has 58.5% ..., fruits, especially apple and pear ... typical bourbon barrel ... after the alcohol is a little gone, exotic fruits are added ...

    Palate: ... there she is, the slightly salty, maritime note, as they have so many malts from the coast ..., overall quite heavy ..., something sharp is there, blindly I would tap on a Talisker smoothly , The fruitiness dominates the taste. With a little water (does him good) disappears the sharpness, which could also be ginger ...

    Finish: ... without end ... fruity with herbs ...

    ... a beautiful Scapa, very direct and without frills. What I have missed is the honey note, which was the bottlings I know. Overall, no malt for eternity but a very good daily dram. 88 Pts.

  8. Laga93 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    In the nose and on the palate there is a great fruit explosion of exotic fruits. A wonderfully sweet malt.

  10. Torfding scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Despite the high alcohol content, this scapa needs no water, and I had no opportunity to test this. Because unfortunately I had only a small sample, here I would like to have the whole bottle!
    • Nose
      soft and fruity, heathland, fresh sea air, slightly malty, cucumber spices (fresh dill?)
    • Taste
      salty, fruity and after a few moments peppery, with sweet notes, ginger, vanilla, malt, old red apple, some marzipan
    • Finish
      long; spicy and slightly herbaceous with hints of chocolate and hints of peat smoke, slightly bitter
