Tasting Notes by SimeonSanchez

I can't get over the impression of artificial grape when I nose this one, not bad artificial grape necessarily. It's like a grape lollipop, the kind with a loop stick, really sticky and tempting. There's also an impression of wax or fat, maybe pork fat. A creamy maltiness is also there, with honey and red fruit.

For taste, it is really a fine whisky and well worth delving over. In the mouth, it is lusciously sweet, like some kind of gooey candy. Grassy sweetness, honey, caramelized fruit, and a slight brininess wash over the tongue. This would be mind-blowing at cask strength.

I've always thought Scapa 16 was underrated on this site. I get more musty leaves in it, but in a good way. Maybe that's the "grassiness" you mention. I like your review
