Scapa 15 1993 Bottling Note
A cask strength, straight from the cask bottling of Scapa. This was distilled in 1993 and bottled by Chivas Brothers in 2009.
Scapa Cask Strength 15yr old, bottled 2009
Being relatively new to the appreciation of single malts this was my first taste of a "cask strength" edition. It is simply unlike any whisky, malt or otherwise, I have tasted before. Intense, straight up the nose, with a burst of orange & grapefruit and the most satisfyingly smooth and warm afterburn, this is going to take some beating.
I must say I'm not a great fan of "smoky" malts as yet, I much prefer those with a clean, citrus flavour along with hints of wood and saltyness, but I'm happy to keep learning.
In the meantime though, this is my current #1 malt. Bliss in a glass.
