Michael Jackson

Nose
Soft. Hay, with a hint of oily chocolate and vanilla. Warm.
Palate
Smooth. Chocolate, vanilla, nuts. Very lively and appetising.
Finish
Late salt and pepper, with a hint of rooty peat.
Comment
Scapa can seem a delicate whisky, but it is full of flavours, and deserves its growing following.

Jim Murray

Nose
An essay in elegance with a delicate honey note attached to the malt and heather. The smokelessness and resulting lack of weight easily distinguishes it from a Highland Park, despite the honey-heather.
Palate
Immediately malty and rich with a delicious spicy tingling of old oak. The honey holds the middle and interplays with the drier oak notes and juicier malt. Wonderfully complex.
Finish
Cocoa-rich notes and biscuity maltiness makes for a quite weighty finale, and some curious smoke even wafts in from somewhere.
