Scapa 16 Year was tasted at Meeting No. 30 on November 20, 2014. Out of 5, we rated it very highly at 3.42. Scapa 16 Year ranks 11th overall in Scotch. Costing $70, this spirit is on the pricier side given the our rating of it.
Sugary smell but slight. Solid body that passes straight to the back of the tongue. Cloves, wood, a little honey. A little water explodes the flavor. Best for: Just sippin'
Carries to the palette with sweet fruits and florals. Transitions to a heavy building of spice and an oily burning dark end.
Light touch of sugar water nose, some vanilla. Salt and pepper and sea spray. Alcohol is present but not unwelcome.
Floral, smooth - great value! A bit of a taste of honey and chocolate. Its silky front to back.
Smooth nose. Honey overtones. Accessible.
