Notes

Scapa 14yr single malt is the flagship expression aged for the "standard" number of years.

Scapa Distillery was founded in 1885 and happily produced scotch from its remote island location until mothballed. In 2004, it faced closure but managed to raise the necessary capital to refurbish and continue and at that time "the first new spirit flowed." Because their scotch is matured near the sea they say the scotch "reeks of briny sea air" giving the whisky a "salt tang." In contrast to most scotches, the malt is unpeated.
