 A solid dram of Highland Park Single Malt magic with more smoke and strength.

Highland Park is the most northerly distillery in Scotland on the island of Orkney. Legend has it that it was founded by Whisky smuggler Magnus Eunson in the late 1700s and that he used his position as a church officer to conceal Whisky beneath the church pulpit. Don’t assume that “Highland Park” means their Whisky is made in the Highland style. In character, their spirit is closer to a midpoint between Lowland and Islay Single Malts. Perhaps the most famous Whisky connoisseur of all time — journalist Michael Jackson — called Highland Park, “The greatest all-rounder in the world of Malt Whisky.”

“Normal” Highland Park Whiskies are lightly peated. They accomplish this by toasting only about 1/5 of the malt with peat smoke — the rest is dry roasted with heated air. Highland Park Valkyrie ups the peated malt to half of the total. That’s still well short of the heavily peated Islay malts, but you’ll notice the difference. And at 45.9% ABV there is enough power to bring the flavor home. The result is still pure Highland Park, but smokier and stronger than their core range.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland and some other parts of the world distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and USA they spell it Whiskey.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aromas are well-balance between smoky brine and creamy mixed fruits.

Interestingly, the flavors bloom on the palate in wave — first dried apricots and apples, then beaches and sea, then back again and again.
