Viking Honour is the heart and soul of Highland Park reflecting the unique culture of the remote island. The distillery describe the 12 Years Old as "intensely balanced single malt - a perfect harmony of aromatic smoky peat and the flavours of sweet heather honey and rich fruit cake. Smooth, full and rounded it's a whisky that truly stands apart."
