A single malt Scotch whisky, described as "the honeyed tropical one", due to its smooth and sweet taste, topped off with a hints of tropical fruits, citrus and coastal heather. Skiren's character comes from a maturation period in specially hand selected first-fill American Oak casks.
Unlike many island whiskies, Scapa Skiren isn't dried with peat, leaving it uniquely sweet and fruity for the region. It's made with water from the Orquil Springs, and is distilled in a copper still, and matured in casks from Tennessee and Kentucky.
The Scapa Distillery opened in 1885, and has been producing fine single malt whiskies ever since, in Kirkwall, Orkney.
Nose - Delicate scented floral flavours with a hint of fresh pear. Sweet and fruity pineapple notes with a citrus tang.
Taste - Smooth and sweet, ripe honeydew melon slices, bursts of fruity pear and lemon sherbet.
Finish - Long, refreshing, shimmering sweetness.
