Customer Rating
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

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    Definitely my favourite single malt, I tried it in a Heathrow airport test in 94 and since then my beloved one.

    A lovely easy drinking whisky. Ideal for those who find peat, smoke and a burning throat things to avoid. I would call it a beginners whisky, but for me - the best.
