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.

Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Scapa sits on a stretch of ocean called the Scapa Flow, famous as the final resting place of the German naval fleet scuppered at the conclusion of World War I. One hopes they were offered a consolation drink at the shore.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
