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 subsequent Viking Legend bottlings are Valknut and Valhalla.Tasting Notes (2)
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
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.
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.
The rich fruit and spice battle it out.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Sharp tang of sweet green apples and ripening lemons.
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.
Exquisitely balanced, the long and lingering finish delivers waves of warm aromatic smoke and richly ripened fruit.

Excellent! Not too smoky, not too peaty.
Vanilla and peatier than I expected. The Valkyrie have chosen me to live, and live well.
Loving it. Popular with the whole family – bridging the gap between those afraid of the peat and those that love the peat. A light touch, less sweet than normal Highland Park but with an enticing smokeiness that keeps one coming back for more. Only criticism is that it is way to easy to drink and keep drinking!
Tastes young. Light acacia honey on the nose, a hint of peat and grapefruit. Flavour has light spice and a bit of wood on the finish. Quality spirit but I think it needed more time in cask to develop maturation.
Complex, full bodied with a little view to Islay
