  1. wbarchive_875995 did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Boring whisky. Everything seems to be in balance in the body, but in basic magpies it is drunk very faded and watery, perhaps if they had given at least 43-46, it would have been a completely different matter. A nice melon in the aroma, everything else is very mediocre.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Pretty faded, slightly aromatic, slightly diluted. Ripe melon, smoked citruses, a little honey and zest, vanilla nuances, animal tones, smoke.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Sluggish, light bitterness, dries pretty well, barely noticeable sweetness and sourness of citruses, it seems like balance, but it seems boring. Malt, honey, smoked citrus, a little black pepper.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Dry, bitter, short. Barrel, malt, smoked meats and citruses.

    A light aperitif-style whisky you could say
    A spirit driven expression with a fine distillate.
    Min. 46% NCF would get it at least 2 more points.
    Sure if you drink this together with more heavyweight whiskies it will not get past 1st round.

    A bit more spicy and sweet than Skiren, with hints of apricot and a touch of smoke. Not very complex at all, but anyway an enjoyable easy dram with its 40 abv, that weakens the boldness of a likely young age. Batch GL05,.bottled 7/18.

  7. Gilles_V scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    An excellent whisky to drink in the morning, after a short walk. During the day or in the evening, its 40% unfortunately gives it an uninteresting aqueous side.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Magnificent nose on citrus fruits, in particular tangerine, all slightly perfumed with peat.
    • Taste
      64 64
      Far too fluid. But why is the Scapa almost always bottled at only 40% ???
    • Finish
      79 79
      Quite short but interesting (cereals and peat very present, on the smoky side).

  8. Jackson05 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    1 of 9 scapa at a club tasting.

    Yet another one at 40abv. Should be higher. Especially for scapa, which is a fairly tame profile, but still tasty.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Brine, melon, honey, pepper, ashy, lemon zest, weakish nose, even by scapa standards.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Soft vegetal peat, salt, lemon honey cough drops, touch of mint, underpowered.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Don’t blink, soft salt, lemon, white pepper and ginger.

    • Finish
      very short finish; pleasant fruity finish;
