Highland Park 'Valhalla Collection 16 Years Old' Single Malt Scotch Whiskey 750ML
From the Producers
HIGHLAND PARK VALHALLA COLLECTION 16 YEARS OLD SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKEY
Highland Park Odin is the final of four releases in the Valhalla Collection available from Highland Park Distillery. Odin pays homage to the eponymous Norse god, the dominant Allfather and King of Asgard known for his furious and intensely complex character. According to the distillery, “Odin is the strongest of all the Norse gods and driven by an unquenchable thirst for wisdom. By sacrificing an eye for a drink from the Well of Wisdom, he earned immeasurable knowledge and insight. With only one eye which blazes like the sun, Odin cuts an ominous figure.”
Highland Park Freya Single Malt Whisky is made from lightly peated barley, which is mashed and fermented before being twice distilled through Highland Park's copper-pot stills. Following distillation, the whisky is matured for 16 years in 250 litre hogshead casks which previously housed sherry — the whisky starts in refill sherry casks before being transferred to first fill sherry casks for the final four years of aging. Much like the god it pays homage to, Odin is complex and foreboding, and is housed in a black, battle-worn bottle within a wooden Viking ship. The whisky itself is straw gold in color with an aroma of molasses, sweet cinnamon and raisins. Notes of walnuts, dark chocolate and orange peel appear on the palate over a layer of peat, and lead to a smoky finish with hints plums and gingersnaps.
