Top reviews for Highland Park Viking Pride 18 Year Old:

— Nose 👃 ; Light but complex, florals, biscuits, toffe, some peat and oak, Taste 👅 ; Complex taste, with a sweet smokiness to start of, fruits, some florals, citrus zest, and a dash of hot spices, Finish ; Quite sharp and long, spices and peat, with some caramel, Wow! I really love the complex nature of this dram, I believe I will find new things in this one every time I try it! Not my favorite but definitely one of my top 3! 👌

— Delicate apricot and peach on the nose with a hint of brine, oak, chocolate, and sandalwood. Fruity character plays well with a hint of smoke and caramel on the back. Pallet is complex, with smoke coming out first, and sweetness and fruit developing later. Sweetness is intermingled with salty notes, and all tied well together with delicate peat and fruit. Aftertaste is light smoke with ripe fruit and caramel notes. A few drops of water develops more sweetness and freshness. Overall very smooth, complex, and satisfying. One of the best complex whiskeys.

— Delicious, currently my favorite. A friend during a blind tasting calked it “like strawberries and sunshine”.

Somewhat disappointing for the price and age statement. I was expecting Highland Park 12 on steroids, but it seems as if this lost the profile that makes the 12 yr enjoyable to me. Still a good scotch, but not for the price.

My favourite whiskey so far. I’m still new in this world.

Jasson,
A very tasty dram. Light on the nose - a bit herbal, some toffee. Did not really taste the peat that everyone seems to report - but then again, I've been into heavily peated scotches lately. The finish on this is pretty amazing; sweet and truly pleasant.

Brock,
This is an ideal scotch with peat. Not enough to overwhelm you, but enough to say you've just enjoyed a freaking great 18 year old whisky.
