Bourbon Cask 1191
Dist: Mar 1991 Btl: Sept 2014
Tasted: Nov 2016
A dark, malty and violety nose. Quite coastal and salty. Very much old skool Scapa with mature oak, and almost Tequila-esque, pulped, peppery fruit. Now that’s a unique nose! Superbly balanced and mature with late hints of earth, wood smoke, dunnage, tobacco and vanilla pod.

The palate is full and malty, but like the nose it displays that wonderful, old Scapa coastal, windswept character. Tobacco laced baked fruit, earth, wood smoke and grippy coffee’d tannins follow. Extremely salty on the middle, which leads into a very salty, mouth-watering, citric and malty finish with lingering pepper, midnight violets and salt.
