Classic Scotch.
Scapa Distillery is found on the coastal shores of the mainland of the Isle of Orkney, hence, it gets the nickname, “The Orcadian”. Three men, working in a three-shift rota, run the distillery. While that may make it seem quite isolated, as one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland, it doesn’t take a lot to make it go. All the malt from Scapa is set aside to be released as single malt, with the newest release being the Scapa 16 Year Old.
The Scapa 16 Year Old was released in 2009 and has been slowly moving its way up the Whisky ranks. It combines the sweetness that is characteristic of Highland malts with a wintery spiciness that warms the blood. This is of course needed for those who find themselves anywhere near the Isle of Orkney! The finish is also good and long, letting the warmth of the Whisky settle and dwell for a moment. This is a dram worth trying, if only to discover what marvellous concoctions come out of one of the most northerly distilleries in Scotland.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

Ratings & Reviews
One of my personal favorites. Surprisingly smooth and fresh with a wide complexity in taste. Unlike any other single malt, a must-have-drunk for every whisky lover.
Very smooth and a complex flavor. Will definitely buy a bottle for the collection.
Beautiful lightly oily honey and heather deliciousness. Fantastic with platter of charcuterie.
Subtle and delicious
