One of the two northernmost distilleries in Scotland. The Scapa Dsitillery is located just a little further south than that of Highland Park on the main island of the Orkneys. Unlike its fellow-islander, Scapa has always remained somewhat in the background. Other differences are that Scapa single malt whisky matures almost exclusively on bourbon casks, and that the distillery, apart from their Glansa edition, produces only non-peated whisky. Scapa was closed for a number of years around the turn of the century. Every year a group of Highland Park employees came to run a small distillation round. In 2004, Scapa was fully operational again.
Bottler Gordon & MacPhail put the spirit for this Scapa single malt whisky in its own bourbon barrels and let it mature for 12 years. That resulted in a full whisky with a waxy, pleasant mouthfeel. And with notes of apple, pear, malt and honey.
The Glansa is the only peated single malt whisky from Orkney distillery Scapa. The notes of peat smoke come from the casks on which the Glansa aged. These are casks that previously contained heavily peated whisky. That makes the Glansa a mildly smoky dram
With the Skiren bottlings, Orkney distillery Scapa is releasing an 'ageless' single malt whisky that can serve as a business card. The whisky matured on bourbon casks which gives a surprisingly fruity and sweet and pleasantly drinkable dram. At 40%.
