    Give It A Shot - Scapa Glansa Single Malt Scotch

    This week the good news is that we are excited to try a new Scotch. The bad news, unfortunately, is that with the discovery of this new (to us) Scotch, we learned that we have to begrudgingly say goodbye to one of our all-time favorites. Through a series of unfortunate events, we have come to learn that the Scapa 16 year Scotch is no longer being produced at the distillery. This was quite a shock to both of us as it has long been one of our favorites. There is even a podcast from 2010 that you can listen to in the archives at AboutBeverages.com to prove it. So we will bid a fond adieu to this spirit, who ironically is now only with us in spirit, and memory of course. You may have a hunch by now that the scotch we are trying may be connected in some way to Scapa and if that is your guess, then you are correct. The beverage that we are trying today is the Scapa Glansa. Glansa is an Old Norse word that means “shining storm-laden skies” and this scotch is the first peated single malt expression from the Orkney island based distillery. What did we think? What do you think?  Let us know in the comments below or join us live on Thursday nights to give us your feedback while we are live streaming on Twitch.
