Scapa Skiren was launched last year as an addition to the Scapa standard lineup. As with all Scapas the spirit was distilled in Scapa’s Lomond still, the only one still in operation in Scotland. The whisky is issued without an age statement and has matured in first-fill american oak.
Nose: Apples and pears, dry malt loft. Its youth is apparent the moment you add water.
Palate: Malt, yellow apples, apple peel, some bitterness on the finish.
Comments: A pleasant surprise; a simple, but nice, session dram.
