Tasting Notes:

  • Nose: Sweet and fruity; rich vanilla aromas swirl around tangy cooked apples. Touches of ripe tropical fruits – banana, pineapple, and kiwi – weaved with honeycomb
  • Taste:Creamy with intense pressed green apple flavours balanced by bursts of pink grapefruit. A gentle warming pepper begins to develop with undertones of chocolate and oak.
  • Finish: Relatively long, dry oak and apple pits (bitter almond) with a little sweetness. Lingering hints of elegant dark chocolate lifted by dry bracken and gorse

GORDON & MACHPHAIL Distillery Labels Scapa 2005

GORDON & MACHPHAIL Distillery Labels Scapa 2005, A 2005 single malt from Orkney’s Scapa distillery, bottled by Gordon & MacPhail as part of their Distillery Labels series. This series celebrates the long-lasting relationships that the independent bottler has with the distilleries for which is created unique ‘house labels’. Scapa is distilled on the Isle of Orkney and has a gentle, fresh, floral character. Gordon and MacPhail have a great history of releasing tasty and more-ish vintage Scapa whiskies.

Alongside Orkney’s other distillery, Highland Park, Scapa, founded in 1885, produces a distinctly light and characterful spirit, thanks to the installation of its unusual Lomond still. Scapa has long been described as a hugely underrated malt and there are some absolute gems to discover.

Scapa single malt has a fresh fruitiness, with a distinct, sweet, buttery undertone making it a very approachable malt indeed. It is also one of the most intriguing distilleries to visit: The view from the stillhouse across Scapa Flow is one of the finest in Scotland.

Gordon & MacPhail is an independent bottler of Scotch whiskyand distillery owner, famous for its richly diverse range of bottlings from some of the most notable distilleries in Scotland.

The business was founded in 1895 as a grocer and wine and spirit merchant in Elgin in the northeast of Scotland. In 1915, former apprentice John Urquhart, took over full control of the business. More than a century later, Gordon & MacPhail remains a family business. The range extends to several hundred expressions from around 70 different distilleries, including Glenlivet, Glenrothes and Talisker. The company has gained global attention in recent years by releasing two 70-year-old single malts, one from Mortlach in 2010, and another from Glenlivet in 2012.

In 1993, the company purchased Benromach Distillery at Forres, in Speyside, which had closed 10 years before. It reopened in 1998, with the first bottlings in 2004.
