Scapa 8-year-old (G&M)

Bought: Online Whisky Auction, 20th May 2015

79.67/100 – Whiskybase (average from 5 member votes)

The auction website I use for buying miniatures has the same postage for 1 bottle as it has for 20. It therefore makes sense to get as close to 20 bottles as possible to spread out the delivery charge, which is about £14. If the auction ends and all you’ve won are 2 bottles for £10, having to pay £14 postage adds an extra £7 to each bottle. I’ve been stung by this before so I always have back-up bottles to bid on towards the end of an auction. This explains why I bought 3 bottles of this Scapa. It’s a distillery I love, and having 3 bottles means I can drink 2 and still have 1 in my collection!

Scoring nearly 80/100 on Whiskybase is a reasonable score. A reviewer, Feusi, summaries this whisky with “caramel and vanilla on the nose, honey-sweet with a touch of smoke and sea. Yesterday and today, a dram from Scapa is always worth the time.” I couldn’t agree more!
