Scapa 16 year old has a sweet, rich, yet mellow malt fragrance that follows into the palate where it mixes with a velvety, slightly bitter peat, floral citrus and overall brighter profile than many Scotches. The finish is long, dry and lean, which is considerably darker, peatier, oakier than the main palate.

Notes on the Scapa Scotch Single Malt 16 Year 750ML

Technical Notes Scapa Single Malt Scotch Whisky from the remote Orkney Isles, is well known for its unique heather and honey flavour - in contrast to the normally robust island malts from other parts of Scotland. This very special, small distillery, with only 2 Stills, and has been through a careful rebuilding program to restore it to full time production once again. Without this it would fall silent forever.A Legend Reborn: To any single malt lover the closure of any distillery is a tragedy. A unique expression of this most wonderful of all spirits is lost forever as no single malt can ever be ‘re-developed’ elsewhere. Such are the complex mysteries of distilling intertwined with each distilleries unique location.

Indeed few locations we believe are quite as magical as the Orkney Isles. An archipelago of 70 islands, Scapa is located on what is called the Orkney Mainland - despite being one of the islands, it is named as such as it is the biggest of all. Although remote, lying to the North of mainland Scotland, the Orkney Isles have a particularly rich and intriguing history, dating back to at least 5,000 BC.The Vikings arrived in Shetland and the Orkneys in the 8th and 9th centuries and ruled for the next 600 years. In 1468 the islands were effectively sold to James II of Scotland by the king of Denmark. Today the Orkney Isles encompass a wealth of historic sites from bronze age burial mound and villages to standing stones and ancient churches and a wealth of natural history, particularly bird and sea-life.

The history of Scapa distillery itself began in 1885. The very remoteness of the islands meant that they were perhaps not the most obvious location to create a new distillery - especially for a partnership with a history of distilling in Speyside. However this is exactly what Macfarlane and Townsend did. The reputation of the islanders for hard work and an entrepreneurial character may well have been one of the factors, along with the special character of malt whisky they believed could be produced at Scapa. The exact reasons for Scapa's precise location, overlooking Scapa Bay however, are lost in time.However there is little doubt that the location is a special one. Alfred Barnard in his classic Whisky Distilleries of the United Kingdom described the scene in 1887 in poetic terms, 'But the beautiful seascape somewhat compensates for this loss (of trees), for sparkling in the bright sunshine are the white sails of ships, and boats manned by crews who know every creek on the coast, and whose voices can be heard singing the favourite 'Orkney Boatman's Song'. Interestingly Barnard describes the production as being 40,000 gallons per year or 184,000 litres - the same production that is planned today.
