Wednesday Whisky Club - Scapa 16 Years Old

Wednesday Whisky Club - Scapa 16 Years Old

June 06, 2018

Can you believe it's been a week already? This week's selection to get the taste buds going is the Scapa 16 Years Old. Dramatically located on Orkney's famous Scapa Flow, the little Scapa distillery has suffered from turbulent history, inconsistent marketing and the dominant shadow of its more famous neighbour Highland Park.

Scapa 16 Years Old - Scotch and Rich

The distillery was owned by Allied Distillers since the mid 1980s but was badly run and just as it was assumed it'd close over £2m was spent in 2004 on a complete refurbishment.

It was then acquired by Pernod Ricard's Chivas Brothers who relaunched the brand and added a 16 years old expression to the line up.

Colour: Pale and quite interesting

Nose: Fresh fruit, spice and vanilla

Taste: Caramel sweetness, honey and grassy notes

Finish: Ginger nut biscuits and a slightly oily finish.



Sizing Chart

Size Guide | Scotch and Rich

 

 Suit Jacket 

The suit measurements below are for reference only. Please allow ±0.25" difference for actual suit measurement.

See below for further details:
Chest - Measure chest just under arms and across shoulder blades, holding tape level (don’t hold your breath). Be sure to cross over the shoulder blades and the fullest part of your chest. Blazer sizes are equal to your chest size. For example, if you have a 38" chest, you would wear a size 38 blazer. 
If you are measuring in centimetres divide by 2.54 to obtain the measurement in inches.

Notes:

Alteration Notes:

Neck - Measure around the middle of the neck, around your Adams apple or fullest part of our neck, keeping tape level. Allow for index finger to fit between the tape and your neck for a comfortable fit. 


Sleeve/Arm – With your arm around your hip, bend your arm to a 90 degree angle. Measure from the middle of the back of your neck, across your shoulder and down outside of your arm past elbow to your wrist. 


Waist - Look inside one of your pants' waistband. Generally, the size will be written. If you cannot find it, follow these guidelines to find your correct size.
Keep one finger between tape and your body and measure around your natural waistline (usually at the bellybutton). Pants sizes are equal to your waist size. For example, if you have a 38" waist, you should wear a size 38 pants. Remember of your slacks are 1-2" too big or too small, a tailor can easily take them in or out.
Otherwise, use a pair of pants that fit you well, measure from the top of the inner pant leg seam to the opening at the bottom of the pant leg. The number of inches is the inseam length, rounded to the nearest half inch.
The European size of slacks is 16 more than the US size. For example, a size 52 (European) is equivalent to a size 36 (US).


Inseam: With appropriate shoes on, measure from your crotch to your desired pant length. Inseam measurements vary by style. Generally use a pair of pants that fit you well, measure from the top of the inner pant leg seam to the opening at the bottom of the pant leg. The number of inches is the inseam length, rounded to the nearest half inch.
