Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Scarabus to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

Scarabus Bottling Note

Sourced from an undisclosed Islay distillery comes Scarabus, a single malt from Hunter Laing launched for Fèis Ìle 2019. Scarabus means ‘rocky place’ in Old Norse, named after a mystical area of Islay. The whole expression is quite mysterious, from the secretive distillery to the golden symbols adorning the bottle. A very handsome bottling housing delicious Islay whisky.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Classic notes of maritime peat smoke, sea spray and sea salt, with a subtle hint of vanilla and oak spice.

Palate: Oak char, old leather, stewed orchard fruit and vanilla sweetness returning among the smoky peat.

Finish: Lingering bonfire smoke, salted caramel and fresh berries.

Scarabus Reviews

A piece of (peat) heaven

People who are rating this whisky with less than 3 out of 5 are crazy. If you don`t like peated whiskies then why do you buy one? This is everything the peat fans need. For me it is in the same league with Ardbeg 10, Caol Ila 12 or Laphroaig 10.
I had two bottles, and i will buy again. Nice affordable stuff

Great value and great quality..

As a fan of smoke and peat I was pleasantly surprised… this whiskey really delivered…and for about $35 here in the US …that’s a great buy… thanks… and keep up the great work!

Fantastic

Holds its own with any of the standard bottlings from Islay. The smoke and the sweetness are married better then they are on Ardbeg 10. It’s sweeter than Laphroig 10. At $15-20 cheaper than either of those two it’s a must buy.

Fantastic

On par with Ardbeg An Oa, which is better than Ardbeg 10 IMO.

$35, often on sale for $29.99

Can’t imagine any Islay fan not liking this.

A lovely dram that won't break the piggy bank

I'm a bit baffled by the occasional bad review, I won't go flowery on the description, but I love it. I bought a bottle last year at Ardnahoe and I was back there last week and bought another one. As a wee footnote, if you haven't been to the distillery then do so if you can; not only have they secured a stunning location but the staff are fantastic and the food as well as the whisky is excellent. Top marks.

Great Islay malt

Top quality Islay single malt, sweet and smoky. Great value

Buyer beware.

Nice packaging. 3 years old spirit. Pure P1sh.

Not what I wanted and a disappointment from the new Islay boys and girls. Could do better

Islay single malt bargain

A great all around Islay, and this one would truly qualify as an excellent introduction to the notes for which Islay whisky is known. Smooth peat on the nose, with a bit of smoke, continuing on the palate with some caramel and gentle sea and leathery citrus; finishing with a medium length gently brined and honeyed smoke. This is a refined single malt for a bargain price.

Well balanced

Delicious, well balanced and easy to drink. It was a gift I received and I am just about to buy it as it is really pleasant to drink.

Everyday, peaty, smooth.

For sure a 4 out of five. Peaty start smooth caramel finish. Competes with anything under 100 Canadian dollars easily and many overpriced small batch snobbery.
