Scapa 16 year old single malt whisky is matured in New American oak casks. Coming from the island of Orkney, the sea breeze does show in it. The package already tells you a story, what’s coming. Looks like a view from a lighthouse. And the whisky surely feels like it.
Reminds me of the movie Shutter Island, where the movie trailer told the story for you. It did ruin the movie a bit for me, which isn’t the case with Scapa 16 yrs. The package doesn’t ruin anything. On the contrary, I like the way it gives you an idea about the content. And the idea is executed very well.
I feel like I’m in a mystery lighthouse on Shutter Island, sipping away some great single malt, feeling the salty sea air breezing through. And just like the movie, this whisky isn’t a mystery to me. And I like it!
