Scapa Skiren, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
Inspired by summer's bright, glittering skies, described in Old Norse as skiren, this expression is exclusively matured in first-fill American oak casks.
Nose: Runny honey and fresh cream. Hints of apple and a touch of anise. Maybe some crushed nuts, too...
Palate: Continued honey warmth and richness. Sparks of juicy pear and lemon peel. Touches of oak develop further on, bringing some balancing spice.
Finish: Medium length and a bit sweet, with oak lasting too.
