The second release in Highland Park's Viking Legend series. Found upon the bodies of slain warriors and thought to invoke the presence of Odin himself, Valknut will transport you to a roaring longhouse feast with its woody, smoky and spicy character.Tasting Notes (1)
- Black Pepper
Producer's Tasting Notes
Toasted vanilla pods, cracked black pepper, oak shavings, aniseed, aromatic smoke.
Sweet, aromatic cloves join forced with tangy hints of aniseed.
Intensely balances, bold and courageous, leaves a lingering memory of aromatic peat smoke and sweet spices.

I like it... mostly dry and spicy, full bodied with some peat and smoke notes. Reminds me of something like Springbank 10.
It will need some time, but I find this whisky very promising. The black pepper is a nice addition, and it has enough depth of flavour to last a good while.
Smoke and wood on the nose with the classic Orkney leather followed by a grainy black pepper palate. I can tell it's HP. Fresh bottle so will have to re-visit in a month or so.
To bifter, there is nothing wrong with blends. To imply such only indicates snobbery and ignorance. There are many great blends just as there are many poor malts. However, in this case it's just another NAS designed for mass consumption.
Very poor whisky. I blind-tasted this and thought it was a blend. Bitter and grainy with that fusty, sweaty note of young whisky. Nothing good about it, especially the price! Sorry Gordon, you're at it with this stuff.
