Description

Scapa Skiren The Orcadian

Scapa Skiren The Orcadian is a surprisingly smooth and honeyed single malt whisky, a unique tasting profile for an island malt.

They call Skiren the honeyed tropical one because of its smooth, creamy sweetness with a hint of tropical fruit, citrus and coastal heather. It is exclusively matured in first-fill American oak casks.

Nose: Delicate scented floral flavours with a hint of fresh pear. Sweet and fruity pineapple notes with a citrus tang.

Palate: Smooth and sweet, ripe honeydew melon slices, bursts of fruity pear and lemon sherbet.

Finish: Long, refreshing, shimmering sweetness.

Production

Unlike other island distilleries, no peat is used to dry this malt; leaving the sweet and tropical flavours of Scapa to come through. Our malt is housed in four sturdy hoppers, and due to the wildly unpredictable weather, they store more barley than bigger distilleries on the mainland.

Water for the mashing is piped in from the nearby Orquil Springs, fed by rainfall from the hilltops. This is when the malt is turned into wort, bringing us one step closer to the final product, and releasing the fruity, honey flavours that make Scapa so unique.

Benefitting from this process are the local cows, who are fed the draff, or leftover grains. Some even joke that Orkney beef is so tasty because the cows get happy on their own wee drams.

The new make spirit is racked into first-fill American Oak casks, hand selected and brought in from Tennessee and Kentucky. These precious American imports are what brings our single malts their soft vanilla taste. The barrels are then set to rest until our Master Distiller bestows his blessing upon them.

Producer

Scapa is crafted by a small team of dedicated artisans and a Master Distiller, using traditional methods perfected over generations. One of the last remaining manually operated distilleries, manned 24 hours a day.

Our crew work in successive shifts which means each shoulders the honour of delivering a consistently smooth, creamy sweet single malt on his own. Trust is a word they do not take lightly. – https://www.scapawhisky.com/the-artisans/

Clynelish 14 YO

You can almost taste the coastal flora in Clynelish Single Malt Scotch Whisky, with its crisp, medium- bodied, mustard-fresh style. Although you won’t find Islay’s powerful smokiness here, there is just a trace of it lingering. It’s said Clynelish whisky is closer to an Island style than other mainland malts, with a complex and fragrant nose and an agreeable long finish that leaves a lingering fresh-fruity flavour. Not a heavyweight, it is yet deliciously drinkable, and perfect as an aperitif.
