Scapa Scotch Single Malt 16Yr

Scapa Scotch Single Malt 16Yr 750ML      
Sku: 18084

Scapa is unique for an island whisky as its malted barley is entirely unpeated. The water is the secret of Scapa. We know how carefully this was selected by the complexity and considerable cost the founders went to. Orkney has literally thousands of burns (streams). Having decided on creating a ‘coastal’ single malt the distillery location had to be by the sea and like many distilleries it is sited on a burn - the Lingro burn.

Tasting notes
Deep honeyed gold. Heavy, butterscotch sweetness, dried fruits, subtle hints of orange. Smooth and full. Perfectly balanced wild honey and heather, delicate spices. Very rich and long with a distinct dry after taste. Island or more correctly named Coastal whiskies all have a common trait. The maturation takes place by the sea. The old dunnage warehouses literally reek of the briny sea air.

Wonderfully expressive. Strawberry, kiwi, apricot and mango skin allude to deeper and more complex notes of toffee and caramel covered apple. In the mouth it delivers a distinct honey-toned sensation of custard and biscuit dough before delivering a smooth, silky finish dotted with apricot.
