Whisky Reviews for Scapa Glansa

16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 79.48 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      A light peatiness, which is to be expected from a peated cask finish. It goes hand in hand with a salty sea spray and some brine. A whisper of vanilla, accompanied by a good amount of ripe banana.
    • Taste
      Fairly dry and quite peaty, with some soot and tar to boot. Notes of toasted oak, heather and a light touch of honey round everything out.
    • Finish
      Subtle peat, drying.

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 64 points Connoisseur

    RubbishManufactured crap with a really bad aftertaste

    The nose is ok but it's all downhill from there.

    I picked the Scapa 16 what a nosedive in quality this and the Skiren are in comparison.

  4. peatbogger scored this whisky 76 points Specialist

    A pseudo peated whisky at a slighty too high price.

    Tasted at Scapa distillery.

  5. peatbogger scored this whisky 76 points Specialist

    It is not made with peated barley, rather getting the peat note from re-using what I suspect are Islay casks.
    • Nose
      Never found this level of articulate peat in an Orcadian before. More briny than heathery. But still very fleeting and elusive.

      Soft fruit on pear and pineapple.

      A little vanilla and some fatty almonds.
    • Taste
      Peat smoke also on initial arrival, although weak. A little young and rough, but there are some sweet fruit to soften it.
    • Finish
      Rather short with some oaky dryness to it.

  6. Helgo scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Unfortunately a bit disappointing. In my opinion, the 16er can neither replace nor even reflect the character. Low aromas, very thin mouthfeel and medium-long finish.

  7. vojt466 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    It's not bad, but it would have a higher voltage and a lower price. But, in my opinion, better than Skiren.
    • Nose
      Compote from tropical fruit - dominates pineapples, it is also mango, a little plums. Dried figs, malt, salt, spices, vanilla and smoke appear.
    • Taste
      The early onset of lighter peat, later more pressing into the foreground peaches, malt, cereal, cream latte.
    • Finish
      Again, la latte, cereals, more pronounced spiciness and, of course, peat. It's long gone

  9. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm 2/5 Whisky n ° 1358
    • Nose
      Fruity at first, typical of a matured American oak ex-bourbon, little marked smoke. The aromas become blurred a little and eventually even fade.
    • Taste
      No attack. Then, sweet and rather nice, but a bit flat. Some spices, but a little lack of balance.
    • Finish
      Rather insignificant.
