All about making whisky
With intermittent fruity notes of Irish whiskey, this new Scapa called ‘Skiren’ has been entirely matured in first-fill bourbon barrels. However it very quickly reveals its Nordic origins. Particularly saline, its somewhat medicinal character gradually takes centre stage. Flowers, aromatic plants and chocolatey notes add the finishing touches to this bucolic, voluptuous masterpiece.
Profile: notes of vanilla, chocolate and orange blossom. It then becomes increasingly aniseedy and herbaceous.
Although the spring water it uses is highly peated, Scapa produces a single malt that is not very peaty - in fact, almost not peaty at all. The distillery uses a Lomond-style wash still in its own original fashion, enabling it to produce an oily and unctuous spirit. Lighter than its neighbour Highland Park, the single malt produced by the Scapa distillery is always a close reflection of the grain, expressing fruity notes (pear), hints of marine (salt) on the palate and a chocolatey finish. Its single malt is mainly used for the blends of the Ballantine’s family. Find out more
