DESCRIPTION

Highland Park Odin 16 Years The Valhalla Collection, the long-awaited fourth and final entry in Highland Park's The Valhalla Collection. Odin (aka 'The Furious One'), is a rich and dark whisky with the distillery's trademark sweet and gently peaty character. Aged for 16 years in a combination of first-fill sherry casks and refill hogsheads, this is one not to miss.

TASTING NOTES

Colour
Clear, mid-deep golden amber with burnished gold highlights.

Nose
Almost refined, by Highland Park standards, with toasty honeycomb, marshmallows over an open fire, red-berry fruit, strawberry Fruitella sweets and pink peppercorns. The smoke is there, but lurking in the background.

Palate
Way more robust than the nose, this delivers a big, bold whack of peat and smoke initially, then starts to reveal complex, mouth-filling notes of bitter chocolate, old books, honeycomb and finally, the fruit (red-fruit compote and a hint of candied orange peel). I also get an earthy note – plenty to contemplate here.

Finish
Red-berry fruit is the dominant note, then the peat smoke takes hold. Nice that the fruit makes itself heard among all that fire and brimstone.
