Awful. What were they thinking?

Offensive to the eye. Please wrap it in a brown paper bag.

Quite good. I wish more distillers would use more packaging like this.

Scapa 14 Packaging

Postby jruddy » Thu Aug 30, 2007 6:34 pm

I have never (until today) even thought of purchasing Scapa 14, simply because of the contemporary packaging (which is a nice way to say an ugly modern looking tube).

Based on comments by my guests I needed a lighter dram to offer up and bought a bottle.

Is it me, or does this tube look more like something produced in Hollywood than in Scotland?

HHMM.. now that you mention it, I can see what you mean.

While I do not think it a great packaging, I do not find it as offensive as you seem to do.

I have not voted - need an "indifferent" option.
And yes the important part: the malt inside is a nice, light malt :)

I just think it's kind of drab and uninspiring, as if they didn't want to be noticed. Yeah, that beam of sunlight on the water just doesn't say "Orkney" to me--how about a sideways squall of hailstones?

My local pusher still has one last bottle of 12. There were three or four up there for a long time, and I was hoping they'd drop the price from $47.99. No such luck, I guess. I don't want it $47.99 worth.

I don't have a problem with it. To my mind it's better than their neighbours new livery!
I'm more interested in what's in the inside and would commend it to all whisky drinkers.

I like bottles with colorful labels and would buy and collect bottles just because of it. Like last week, I bought two bottles of old Antiquary because the label is quite unique and looks very old with a man facing backwards dressed in old clothes reaching for a bottle.

theres worse packagings on the market.

must say though, i popped a bottle in with my shopping in sainsburys tonight, not because of the eye catching packaging, but for the £19.99 price. £5 off.
