81/100 – Malt Maniacs (average from 3 reviewers)
My second bottle of Scapa and also my second from the bottlers ‘Gordon & MacPhail’. At some stage I’d like to get an official bottling from the Scapa distillery but, as I write this, the entry level 16-year-old is nearly £50! It seems rediculous when you think an excellent 12yo bottle of the orcadian neighbour to Scapa, Highland Park, can be bought on discount from Tesco for £25 – half the price! And the Scapa 16yo gets some very mixed reviews.
Speaking of reviews, this mini Scapa 1993 gets a good mark on Malt Maniacs with 81/100. The one reviewer that leaves a comment says it goes very well with a chocolate-based dessert. I’ve heard that about whisky and chocolate before but I can’t say I’ve ever tried it (apart from mixed in to my mother’s whisky pudding). Sounds like something new for 2014!
