Highland Park Odin Single Malt Scotch Whisky 16 year oldHighland Park Odin represents a single malt Scotch whisky worthy of its namesake - the formidable and commanding ruler of Asgard. Its intense complexity ensures this final release is deserving of its rightful place at the head of the Valhalla Collection. Colour: Vivid burst of sunlight. Nose: This intense whisky possesses a fierce spice; cinnamon bark and nutmeg rise from Odin's spirit. Behind the spice, toasted walnuts smoulder with pulsating explosions of smoke. Odin cuts an ominous figure and this whisky is no different. Palate: A huge, powerful palate draws on the complexity of Odin's character. Layers of peat uncover thousands of years of wisdom. Dense oak and still smouldering away are the rich charred walnuts. Finish: Throughout is a subtle sweetness, sharing the knowledge of well-seasoned sherry wines. Plums and soft fruit disappear into the dark as the peaty embers glow into a smoky finale.
Highland Park Ice Single Malt Scotch Whisky 17 year oldA special bottling of only 30,000 bottles which delves into the world of classic Norse mythology. In bespoke blue coloured glass reflecting dazzling and glittering ice, the bottle shape has been designed especially to evoke the distinctive sharpness and coolness of the Ice Realm. The bottle is encased in a stunning mountain shaped, oak wood cradle with wooden stopper. The circle design of the glass represents the circle of life - the creation of the world, protected by a serpent, a mythical creature central to classic Norse mythology. Tasting Notes Colour: Naturally radiant and vivid in colour; glacial, mirror-like brightness Nose: Vivid aromas of cool, fresh pineapple and ripe mango sorbet come to life - in this celebration of glacial character. Silvery shards of smoke give way to the frosty kick of root ginger. Palate: Like the Ice Giants themselves, the palate is powerful yet mellifluous. In true Highland Park style, the combination of an silvery, misty peat smoke is inter-twined with pearlescent vanilla seeds and overtones of molten orris root . Finish: Beautifully balanced, the creamy, rich, oily finish snowballs into long lingering woodiness and dry, feverish spices, providing a scintillating and harmonious whisky to savour.
