Lacks the energy and the lusciousness you expect from Scapa.
Aged 13 Years
Islands (Non Islay)
Nose: Light and earthy: some banana, but pretty lean and woody.
Palate: Very sweet with light tropical fruit (lemon and orange Opal fruits). Spiky alcohol. Wood is quite firm.
Comment: Lacks the energy and the lusciousness you expect from Scapa.
Nose: Faint whiff of peat.
Palate: Starts fresh and soft as spring water. Then develops delicate flavours, but plenty of them: flowery; a hint of cereal-grain sweetness, the faintest hint of peat.
Finish: Refreshing. Very late saltiness.
Comment: A very light, clean expression. Scapa deserves to be in regular production.
