SCAPA DISTILLERY Scapa Skiren The Orcadian
A 2015 addition to the Scapa range, the Skiren is a handsomely honey’d single malt Scotch whisky which has been distilled in the Scotch whisky industry’s only remaining working Lomond Still! It was matured in first fill American oak casks, bringing plenty of vanilla and honey notes. The name comes from the Old Norse word for “glittering bright skies.”
Bottled at 40% abv.
Nose: Runny honey and fresh cream. Hints of apple and a touch of anise.
Palate: Continued honey warmth and richness. Sparks of juicy pear and lemon peel. Touches of oak develop further on, bringing some balancing spice.
Finish: Medium length and a bit sweet, with oak lasting too.
