Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Rich and generous. Again, overwhelming distillery character.

Dun Bheagan Scapa 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%

6 I am not sure about that sulphur. Is it from the cask, or is it seaweedy? I usually like seaweed, but am not convinced by this bottling.

Old Malt Cask Scapa 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 Light and discreet. Perfectly pleasant but not exactly exciting.

Scapa 16 Years Old
