Halò Single Malt Mates,
Aye Highland Park is one of my favorite whiskies. Yes Indeed!
Here is their newest Expression!
Valknut 46.8% 70cl
Bottle Size 70cl
Alc. Volume 46.8%
Only those that met a worthy death on the battlefield were marked by the ‘Valknut’ and taken by Odin’s Valkyries to the great halls of Valhalla to feast and drink; and to await the great battle of Ragnarok at the end of the world. This is the inspiration for Highland Park’s second release in the Viking Legends series, a slightly smokier release containing Tartan barley grown on their own shores of Orkney.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Toasted vanilla pods, cracked black pepper, oak shavings, cloves, aniseed, aromatic smoke.
Palate: Sweet, aromatic cloves join forces with tangy hints of aniseed.
Finish: Intensely balanced, bold and courageous, leaves a lingering memory of aromatic peat smoke and sweet spices.
Thoughts on whiskey: “Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.” Mark Twain
Here’s tae the heath, the hill and the heather,
The bonnet, the plaid, the kilt and the feather.

Great health and every good blessing to you
