Scapa Glansa 70cl
Scapa Glansa is another release from this Orkney based distillery. This whisky was not distilled using peated barley but rather, it was aged in ex-bourbon casks and it was then 'finished' in casks which previously contained peated single malt. It is a mild-peat level and it's delicious.
Scapa distillery profile
Scapa distillery was founded in 1885 and has operated with brief interruptions ever since. The single malt produced at Scapa distillery was a very important component to the legendary 'Ambassador blend'. In 1959 the distillery was fitted with innovative, yet un-popular 'Lomond Stills'. These stills were replaced in the early 1980s as maintaining them was too burdensome. In 2004 the distillery launched the highly acclaimed 14 year old expression which was replaced with a 16 year old expression in 2008. This distillery is currently owned by industry giant Pernod Ricard through its subsidiary Chivas Brothers.
