Comment: What a great whisky. Very complex, even though it is a NAS whisky. The aromas somewhat resemble a bourbon, which, I think, does make sense since this whisky was matured in the first-fill American oak casks. The nose is sweet and creamy with honey dominating, and the honey aroma reminds me the fresh honey just extracted from cells of a beehive. The palate is oaky and spicy at the beginning, but then it becomes fruity and sweet with notes of a baked red apple, cinnamon, honey and zesty citric fruit. The finish is oaky and nutty with a light grapefruit-like bitterness.
The fruity notes resemble not the ripe fruit, but rather a fruit pie or a cake. The official tasting notes say that there is a ginger on a palate, but I personally think that it is rather a zesty citric note. Anyway, I have enjoyed this whisky a lot, and I think it is very worth trying. Looking forward to trying the Scapa 16 years old))

Comment: What a great whisky. Unbelievably smooth - no alcohol burn! The nose is rich with fruit, honey, vanilla and tutti-fruity-like aromas. The palate is satin and creamy with oak and sweet orange(or citrus in general) dominating. The aftertaste is short and creamy. This whisky is not so complex, but it deserves a five-star rating in my opinion. Looking forward to trying Scapa 16 years old :)
