Review: Scribes’ Ink Macallan Scottish Whisky

My thanks to Straits Pen for the ink sample.

Scribes’ Ink Macallan Scottish Whisky is a scented ink. Obviously it’s made to smell like Macallan Whisky but how accurate it is, I have no idea. It’s a brown ink on the yellow end of things. It shades well going from a light yellow-brown to a saturated soil like brown. Scribes’ Ink Macallan Scottish Whisky is really similar to Pilot Iroshizuku Ina-Ho and you all know my thoughts on that ink and that family of colours. It’s safe to say Scribes’ Ink Macallan Scottish Whisky isn’t my favourite ink in terms of colour but this is a completely serviceable ink.

Review: Scribes’ Inks Francisan (Merlot)

My thanks to Straits Pen for the ink sample. I’ve got this sample a while back and I just got quite a lot of ink samples to run through. I’ll get through all of them. On to the ink, Francisan is a wine red ink that’s scented to smell like Merlot. I’m not a wine drinker so I’ve no idea how accurate the scent is. Francisan shades nicely keeping within the red end of the purple-red spectrum. It’s dry time is longer than usual for me.

Review: Scribes’ Pen Cloud Break (Scented)

My thanks to Straits Pen for the providing the ink sample for review.

Scribes’ Pen has a range of inks inspired by wine and liquors. Cloud Break is one of a set of 8. Cloud Break is a red sometimes verging on purple colour that’s scented to smell like Pinot Noir. I’m not a connoisseur of wine so I can’t say if the scent is accurate. Cloud Break is a blend of red, pink and almost purple. It’s a great shading ink that goes from a dark wine red to a faded pink-red.
