While struggling in many regards, this Scapa can offer a lot of subtle, enjoyable flavours.

A great malt-profile is joined by deep orange notes and the unfortunately obvious caramel colorant. A very reliable dram that unfortunately lacks some "fireworks".

Nosing: Malt Grass - very light and subtle aroma - Vanilla Oak Caramel toffee - then gets sweeter - Honey marshmallow Floral Hay some Salt Iodine - very pleasant

Taste: Sweet watery Oak Spices some sourness and Salt needs more ABV! 40% is a crime!

Finish: Spices Oak Vanilla Caramel Coffee even bitterness like coffee-beans

Comment: aroma is amazing, but then it's too subtle. Good for beginners, ladies and sophisticated connoisseurs, who are tired of "roller-coasters"

Nosing: Seaweed Fruit Honey Malt

Taste: Salt Fruit Ginger

Finish: Salt Spices

Comment: Excellent whisky from Scapa. The whisky embodies some excellent balance between saltiness, spice and sweetness (honey). The whisky nose and taste is definitely more subtle than imposing but this made it an excellent whisky to explore. Nice to see the whisky was not chill filtered although caramel colouring is used.
