Tasting Notes

Nose
Distillery:  Ozone, brine, smoke, honey develops.

The WSD:  Vanilla. Peach skins and kumquats. Syrup from tinned fruit. Mixed berries, cherries and sponge cake. Strawberry blancmange. A bowl full of fruit sitting on an oak table (M)

Taste

Distillery:  Honey, salt, smoke, some chilli prickle.

The WSD: The palate replicates the nose with tropical fruit cocktail topped with walnut and now the oak has been milled. Sweet. Angel Delight. Madeira cake. Light fruit cake, treacle toffee, spice and juniper bitterness (M)

Finish

Distillery: Whisps of smoke and chilli spice.

The WSD: delicate cacoffini of flavours (if that's possible) and seems to be different every time but it certainly works (M).

    Highland Park Valkyrie

    The Valkyrie is the first expression in the new Highland Park Viking Legends series.  It is made with more peated malt than is usual for Highland Park. Highland Park's Tasting Note: A dramatic opening with the sharp tang of sweet green apples and ripening lemons gives way to bewitching oriental spices that tease the senses with a promise of a long, slow seduction.  Creamy vanilla - voluptuous and silky smooth - warps itself around sweet preserved ginger and luscious dark chocolate, soothing and enticing in equal measure with tantalising hints of salty black liquorice and the crackle of a smouldering bonfire.  Exquisitely balanced, waves of warm aromatic smoke and richly ripened fruit.
