SMWS 17.39 (Scapa 12 yo 2002/2015)

2015, SMWS
Single malt - Islands
Green gold
56.1% ABV

Nose: Vanilla, limes, orange peel, rose water, violets, hints of chillies. 
Mouthfeel: Heavy body, thickens, sticky, syrupy. 
Tasting: Sweet sour. Vanilla, wolfberries, orange peel, rose water, hints of cardamom. 
Finish: Long. Limes, ginseng, wolfberries, orange peel, hints of cinnamon. 


Pleasantly floral, but creamy and heavy on the tongue. Reminds me of a good gin in some ways, but without the juniper of course. This is really good whisky, with excellent complexity. Surprisingly, it doesn't take water well, losing all that floral notes, and becoming a tad heavy on the spice. It's been a while since I had a Scapa, this was a good way to get back into it.


I like this.
