Whisky or Whiskey

Interesting fact… Scapa 16 Year Old whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Scapa 16 Year Old whiskey, instead of whisky.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is quite thick and rich with notes of honeycomb and toffee. There are some notes of dried peels and notes of marmalade with a malty texture. The palate is full-bodied with a silken delivery. Notes of heather roots and cut grasses, honeyed oak notes with winter spices; cinnamon and cloves. There are some acacia honey notes. The finish is long and developing with notes of dry oak and a gentle, weaving smoke.

Scapa 16 Year old from Orkney

one of the best drams I have ever tasted, absolutely tremendous, once tasted the main concern is to make sure that you purchase another for the best interest of enjoyment; I have yet to taste a better dram. Well done Scapa a true legend.

Perfect is not a Word, Its Whisky

I find it hard to understand some of the negative feedback on Scapa. I was recommended it by a family member. Soon as I raised the Golden liquid to my nose, my senses filled with joy. Upon tasting my mouth exploded with happiness, I knew then I had found the perfect Whisky...... This isn't smokey (there is only the slight hint) and peat has been no where near this. Its fruity, Spicy and has a lasting enjoyable flavor.

Don't bother

I loved the G & P Scapa with a passion, so was very disappointed to discover that this is just a standard whisky, and certainly not worth the extra £20 on the above-mentioned, superior version. What a shame. They're obviously more concerned with their posh, modern marketing and the fact that they're in Orkney.

Apple Cider?

No one seemed to notice an intense nose of apple cider. A delicious dram (PS I like all styles of scotch!

Love it

Great stuff underrated, better than highland park 12 and as good as the 15 and similar price. Worth a try. Also great with smoked salmon.

Great smooth, and top dram

One of my personal top five drams, flavours really stand out on this great drinking whisky don't add water and try to avoid ice (chill trek whisky tastes great) Must get more but on to the 14 year old now which is also very good indeed.

smooth and tender

i'm used to drink harder, i'm a fan of smoked & tough, hard boiled flavour, Caol Ìle cask strength u know... but sometimes i like to change, and scapa is a great escape. luv from italia

Gone in 60 seconds

I have to admit, the box looks great. The nose is sweet and mellow - like the Jura 10yo. The palate is spicy, rich, again sweet and mellow with a strong hint of oak. The finish is dry, warm and full with oak. I have to mention that I usually really appreciate a dry, warm, oak and gently smoked finish. On the other hand the Scapa 16yo can't fulfill my 55 euro Single Malt expectations. To me this is more like a daily dram...

Dr William Makin

Being an eccentic I always drink whisky with food. Scapa is uniquely well suited to this experience because of her deeply penetrating taste but smooth somewhat non-scottish savour. For Sundays only perhaps. Bu what can these distillers buy more precious than the wares the sell?

Not worth the layout

Having enjoyed the 14 year old, I wondered if the 16 year old would live upto expectations. This is indeed a decent dram, but in the reviewers humble opinion is not worth the layout.

Mr.Peter Forshaw

My son takes me to fish the river Findhorn each year ( lucky me ) and Scapa 16 is our truly special and celebratory 'end-of-day' dram. No fish? Who cares? It's worth going just for the Scapa.

Wonderful Apéritif

I enjoy this expression before dinner with some aged cheese, salami slices, and water crckers. No water needed! I give it an 89/100 as is. Higher ABV would bump it up a few points. Excellent dram!

Stunning Whisky

Fabulous unique whisky. Smooth and delicious.

6th November 2010

Great stuff!

DO NOT ADD WATER! Then it will be a great whisky for ralaxing evening sipping. The closest comparison to this noble dram is Oban 14yo.

Scapa 16

What a disappointment. I wanted to enjoy this and initially the nose and flavour were as advertised - sweet, honeyish and a bit of spice in the finish. However, add a spot of water and the whole experience is spoiled with a rather bitter taste. It's only 40% so I suppose it's easy enough to drink neat but I'll be saving £30 and drinking Highland Park 12yo!
