The Scapa distillery is located on the Orkney Islands just a few kilometers from the city of Kirkwall overlooking Scapa Flow.

Scapa Glansa is a crafted single malt forged from the Orcadi elements themselves, remote islands with natural contrasts, contrasts also found in the barrel finishes of this whiskey.

Scapa Whiskey Glansa is made by five artisans dedicated to the Scapa manually operated distillery, with a soft and slightly peaty taste.

Scapa Glansa embodies those unexpected contrasts of the Orkney Islands, which distinguishes it from the traditional Malts of the other Scottish islands.

Beyond the undoubted importance of the type of wood used in the maturation process, there are four elements that influence Scapa whiskey:

1) The location: The old warehouses by the sea give the whiskey what is described as a light taste of salt or as a dry taste on the palate. The result is a Scapa Glansa whiskey with a very different character from that of inland whiskeys.

2) Barley malt: Scapa is the only distillery in the islands to use unpoured barley for the production of its own distillate.

3) The water source: The distillery wants to prevent its whiskey from being overpowered by the peat-derived flavors, for this reason, even if the water from the "Lingro Burn" spring is slightly peated, the Scapa has built a series of pipes that carry water directly to the distillery avoiding further contact with peat.

4) The Scapa whiskey is first aged in barrels ex bourbon and then finished in barrels that previously contained peated whiskey.

This process yields an interesting but not overwhelming note of peat and smoke.

But the Scapa Distillery holds another secret that makes Scapa whiskeys incalculable.

The only remaining of the Lomond wash still, that is the special column stills for distillation, is found in Scapa, allowing the malt used to be better for blanding.

The exclusive aging in American oak barrels adds to Scapa Skiren a smooth and creamy sweetness with a tropical accent of coast heather and citric, uncommon for a Single Malt of the islands but clearly distinguishable in the production of Scapa.

Tasting notes:

Nose: fruity and sweet notes of soft peach, pineapple, vanilla mixed with a thin smoke of bonfires.

Palate: peach and ripe flavors and caramel creamy caramel and vanilla perfectly balanced with soft smoke.

Finishing: very long with a smoked finish.
