Customer Rating
Valkyrie is the first of Highland Park’s new Viking Legend series. Richer than the 10 and 12yo, the emphasis is on rich spice and aromatic smoke, with plenty of heather-rich Orkney peat. The next two Viking Legend bottlings – Valknut and Valhalla – will follow next year and in 2019.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Sweet, aromatic nutmeg, egg custard and vanilla, followed by intense stewed fruit – apple and mango. Sweet spice with a wisp of aromatic smoke lurking behind.

    Palate: Good weight and rich mouthfeel with the spices rolling in, well balanced by the ripe fruit. The rich custard notes are enhanced with nutmeg, clove and ginger, while the sweet smoke plays a supporting role, but never dominates.

    Finish: The rich fruit and spice battle it out.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: Sharp tang of sweet green apples and ripening lemons

    Palate: A bewitching mix of oriental spices. Driven by European oak sherry-seasoned casks, American oak sherry-seasoned casks and bourbon casks, the flavour profile is creamy vanilla with spicy, sweet, preserved ginger and lingering smokiness with hints of liquorice.

    Finish: Exquisitely balanced, the long and lingering finish delivers waves of warm aromatic smoke and richly ripened fruit.

    Well I must say, I was not expecting this! Never a fan of no age statement whiskeys, I was given this as a present from my boyfriend. WOW it blew me away a fantastic rounded dram, with a slight peaty tang! I'll be stocking up on this one for sure, my favourite in a long time.... Thank you Highland Park!

    Always stayed well away from the constantly overpriced, over hyped , needlessly over packaged and don't get me started on the pointless stories, that HP have churned out year after year. This however is well priced, nicely presented - without half a tree being destroyed, well constructed and most importantly very tasty whisky, Hope the next few releases in the series follow suit. Enough of the viking BS though just tell us what is in the bottle maybe? Anyway good job with this one guys - took you long enough.
