Product Description

The long-awaited fourth and final entry in Highland Park's The Valhalla Collection. Odin (aka 'The Furious One'), is a rich and dark whisky with the distillery's trademark sweet and gently peaty character. Aged for 16 years in a combination of first-fill sherry casks and refill hogsheads, this is one not to miss.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    • Nose

      Almost refined, by Highland Park standards, with toasty honeycomb, marshmallows over an open fire, red-berry fruit, strawberry Fruitella sweets and pink peppercorns. The smoke is there, but lurking in the background.

    • Palate

      Way more robust than the nose, this delivers a big, bold whack of peat and smoke initially, then starts to reveal complex, mouth-filling notes of bitter chocolate, old books, honeycomb and finally, the fruit (red-fruit compote and a hint of candied orange peel). I also get an earthy note – plenty to contemplate here.

    • Finish

      Red-berry fruit is the dominant note, then the peat smoke takes hold. Nice that the fruit makes itself heard among all that fire and brimstone.

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    • Nose

      Rich and leathery, with concentrated dried fruit, dark oak and hints of marzipan. As it sits, stewed apples and cinnamon develop, with the sweeter notes balanced by charred oak and a touch of fresh polished leather boot.

    • Palate

      The leatheriness of the nose comes through at the start, with a strong savoury, umami note. Old oak, forest floors and damp earth dominate to start, with sweet fruit cake. The fruit cake doesn't stay sweet, with burnt edges and charred raisins joining with barrel char and earthy smoke to provide a savoury kick on the mid-palate, although sweetened with some liquorice and chocolate touches.

    • Finish

      Soft and sweet, with spiced apple, honeysuckle and sponge-cake batter initially. However, the darker and spicier notes build, with barrel char and damp earth joined by lingering woody spice.

    • Comment

      A rich and dark end to the Valhalla Collection, jumping to the other end of the flavour spectrum to last year's Freya. A fitting final chapter.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • Colour

      Vivid burst of sunlight.

    • Nose

      This intense whisky possesses a fierce spice. Cinnamon bark and nutmeg rise from Odin’s spirit. Behind the spice, toasted walnuts smoulder with pulsating explosions of smoke. Odin cuts an ominous figure and this whisky is no different.

    • Palate

      A huge, powerful palate draws on the complexity of Odin’s character. Layers of peat uncover thousands of years of wisdom. Dense oak combines with rich charred walnuts.

    • Finish

      Throughout is a subtle sweetness, sharing the knowledge of well-seasoned sherry wines. Plums and soft fruit disappear into the dark as the peaty embers glow into a smoky finale.
