Top reviews for Scapa Skiren:

— This is one of the best scotches I've had. What the bottle says about tasting the sea air from the Orcadian Isles is true. It has a much calmer and airier flavor compared to most peaty scotches. It has a beautifully smooth finish.

— Better than I expected, would recommend!!

— Great taste soft

Joshua
Joshua,
The flavors that I experienced with Scapa's now discontinued 16-year scotch are still there, but it's behind the harshness of the first fill American barrels. I was expecting something reminiscent of the 16 year or something new entirely, but what I got was nothing that special. the flavors I was looking for are still there, and the nose is pleasant, but the hardness form the first fill barrels is a bit overwhelming for this scotch.

Sweet and delicious :)

What a complicated relationship I have with this expression. Some nights it would be exactly what I wanted, others it would cause a wince. A technically sound whiskey that I couldn't ever really figure out. I probably wouldn't buy it again but I'm glad I tried it once.

Jared,
Horrible flavor and spoiled-sweet wood after taste that I cannot get off my tongue.

Eric,
Really did not care for this one. It has that spoiled-sweet wood quality that I dislike in Auchentoshan and others.

John,
A tasty finish. But not an $84 bottle. I would put this more at entry level price of $25 to $30. It wasn't anything spectacular.

Smooth, chocolatey finish. Would order this again.

James,
I liked the chocolaty notes.. but a tad too woody for me to really appreciate. I could only enjoy with a bit of water or ice.

Brian,
Always looking out for new scotch options, Scapa blindsided my friends and I with the sheer quality of their previously unknown scotch. Crowd favorite, displacing reigning standard go-to’s.

Pretty good - very smooth

Really good and original one. Has a lot of fruit, citrus, sweet spirits. It deserves an opportunity from the most conservative whisky lovers.

One of my personal favorites. Surprisingly fresh with a wide complexity in taste. Unlike any other single malt, a must-have-drunk for every whisky lover.

"Skapa is famous for their core 16YO dram." It's SCapa and I think they have stopped doing a 16 year old. NAS is a problem
