Matured in refill bourbon barrels. A light and easy drinking malt with a long finish. Replaces the now discontinued 1993 vintage.
Silver award winner Independent Bottlers Challenge 2011.
Nose: Floral notes initially, with a burst of ripe exotic fruits such as Kiwi. Sweet bubble gum influences develop and a hint of bees wax polish emerge.
Palate: Mouth coating with a defined sweet edge, hints of summer fruits emerge and a burst of pepper spice and vanilla lingers.
Scapa Single Malt Whiskey
Scapa Distillery was established by John Townsend in 1885 close by the shore of Scapa Bay in Scapa Flow near Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands. Scapa Distillery is one of only a very few Scottish distilleries to have retained some Corten steel washbacks and is equipped with just two stills including a novel wash still which incorporates the shell of an old Lomond still. In contrast to the other Kirkwall distillery Scapa Distillery produces only unpeated single malt whisky. Official and independent bottlings are quite limited in number due in part to low production levels during the past decades.
