 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.

Rosy Amber

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

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

Finish
It’s nice and long on the finish with licorice and honey.

Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Hobbister Moor is a landmark in Scotland famous for its peat. Because there are no trees on the land to blend in the peat, it has a slightly lighter aroma.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
The 'Valhalla' range of Highland Park is named after the Norse mythological gods.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
