Highland Park Valkyrie description
The first in a new series of Viking Legend releases from the Orkney distillery, this Highland Park single malt is matured in a combination of first-fill American oak sherry, Bourbon and Spanish oak sherry casks as well as a selection of refill casks. Presented in packaging created by Danish designer Jim Lyngvild with inspiration drawn from the ancient Hammer Stone of Gotland and a Viking pendant from Upland, Sweden.An intense, sharp tang of sweet green apples opens the nose before ripening lemon notes. The creamy vanilla palate brings oriental spices, sweet preserved ginger, dark chocolate and hints of liquorice. The long, lingering finish has waves of aromatic smoke and richly ripened fruit.
Valkyrie takes its name from a female figure or spirit that, in Norse mythology, had the power to choose which Viking warriors would die in battle and be taken to join the army of the god Odin. A Valkyrie would identify the fallen warriors by their bold Valknut tattoo.
