Scapa Skiren Whisky

(70cl, 40%)

Scapa Skiren

Scapa Skiren Bottling Note

A 2015 addition to the Scapa range, the Skiren is a handsomely honey'd single malt Scotch whisky which has been distilled in the Scotch whisky industry's only remaining working Lomond Still! It was matured in first fill American oak casks, bringing plenty of vanilla and honey notes to the table. The name comes from the Old Norse word for "glittering bright skies"...

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Runny honey and fresh cream. Hints of apple and a touch of anise. Maybe some crushed nuts, too...

Palate Continued honey warmth and richness. Sparks of juicy pear and lemon peel. Touches of oak develop further on, bringing some balancing spice.

Finish Medium length and a bit sweet, with oak lasting too.

Reviews for Scapa Skiren
Very drinkable!
This whisky seems to be either strongly liked or disliked. I find it very accessible and easy to drink. For me it has a little more to offer than Aberlour 12 which I was finishing when I opened this. I also like many of the Islay malts so this provides a nice contrast. It has a smooth mouth feel and for me the finish is pleasant, it might be termed a ‘session’ whisky! For what it’s worth the Orcadians we met while visiting all preferred Scapa to Highland Park.

A good dram
Not as good as the Scapa 16 yr old (no longer available) but very nice all the same. It is certainly one of my staple single malt whiskys.

Bit disappointing
Great nose and balance of flavours. Not sweet at all. Good first impression but lacks finish and doesn’t impress

Recommend *****
Beautiful. Fell in love with first dram. Strong rare honey throughout, with a definable and veritable quality oak and citrus-hinted finish.

Best whisky but expensive
I try lot of whisky. I pove soft, seeet shisky. Finaly found the perfect one, and this is the scapa skiren. After some bottle bought the 16 y, and that was 2 times more taste more. But for me the skiren is very good one. 1 negative thing the price, the bottle have more the value around je €40 max I THINK.

Nice sweet whisky
There are batch numbers on the labels SK.. 05 .. the whisky is poor in the lower numbers but around 10 onward is much improved

Sickly sweet
I was expecting something more. Smooth, sweet, boring and forgettable. Perfectly drinkable though, especially by those who don't like peat.

Do not buy
Well, the skies have not glittered for me here, after initial layer wears off {and quickly}, remains are thin and lacklustre.
Huge disappointment... Spend your coin on whatever else

Just right
I really liked that fact that this was a very light subtle whisky. Very easy to sip neat.
