The initially controversial 16yo official expression of Scapa is now winning people round with a jump in quality after a few wobbly years following the rapid transition from the much-loved 12yo via the short-lived 14yo. Orkney's less shouted about (but still lovely in its own way) malt whisky has found its feet.

Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Like stepping out on deck during a sea crossing – maritime, sea spray, ozone! Very clean and fresh.
Palate: Fresh and fruity, with good weight, that sea spray lurking around, and a touch of smoke, too.
Finish: Fresh and zingy. Refreshing.

One of the smoothest and tastiest whiskys ever in my opinion. Definate top 3 quality. Beautiful sweet honey aftertaste. One Big lovely glass before bed. Hard to beat.....Incredibly hard.
Very nice indeed. A distinct honey sweetness with very little peat. At 80 proof there is no burn. A splash of water opens it up and makes it even smoother.
I can''t fault the tasting note by Stuart P. Smooth, fresh, & incredibly moreish.
The Scapa 16 is one of my three favorite single malts. Along with any Highland Park and my personal favorite Lagavulin 16, this Scotch offers a beautiful alternative to the Islay scotches and a wonderful compliment to its Orkney sibling.
One of my favourites! and the best price I've found!
I normally only buy Speyside single malts, but on a whim decided to try this and so glad I did! For my tastes the Scapa is the nicest whiskey I've had. Deliciously warming and smooth straight up...but let a couple of large ice cubes melt for 5 mins & it develops a honey sweetness that is a Speyside lovers dream! Well worth it at the present reduced price as well.
I am a fan of this slightly off the beaten track whisky. Fairly subtle flavours to enjoy on a relaxed evening.
You do read a lot of tosh! This is a great, balanced malt which I'm keen does not get better known. Heather, honey and finesse, not a slug of peat to complicate things. If you prefer heavily peated malts, there are plenty about. This one is about balance, and very much to my palate. Great stuff.
