Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    Nose: Classic Scapa apples – waxy green, toffee-covered and apple pie. With them comes a touch of sea spray, with both brine and a gently medicinal hint, some almost rye-whiskey-like spice and a hint of mint.

    Palate: Soft and sweet, with brown-sugar-dusted buttery shortbread, a core of dried and candied apple slices, ground spice, and an autumnal surround of damp forests.

    Finish: Apple skin, Ryvita and green leaves, with soft brown sugar.

    Comment: The apple-y notes are typically Scapa, but there's almost a hint of American-style-whisky spiciness – is there some new oak in the mix? It's easy drinking and a great entry point for the new Scapa range.

    I recently tried this whisky and must say for the price range ive had better. Not saying it wasnt nice as it was. Notes of apple / pear for me we a hint of spice and vanilla. But it was a bit sharp / harsh on my palate. Even a drop of water did not stop this. It is a pleasent drink just not my cup of tea for this price range.

    Certainly apple-y on the nose, I also picked up sea air. Bit of spice in the mouth, but I detected pineapple and mango and wildflower honey at the end. Not a long finish but a nice caramel/toffee aftertaste. Not overly complex, would make a nice, light lunchtime dram or difestif, I would say.

    Nice to see all the Whisky Connoisseurs who can't even spell it correctly. I think you'll find it's not Whiskey but Whisky.......

    Lightly salted honey, lingering spice with a hint of smoke. Leaves a clean, full taste in the mouth. A worthy successor to Scapa 16-year old.

    Pleasant nose. Initial taste is probably too subtle for most palates with a better biscuity, spicy finish.
