The second release in Highland Park's Valhalla Collection following last year's Thor release. Loki is Thor's adoptive brother, a mischievous soul, possibly even a shape-shifter and certainly an enigmatic character.
Highland Park have sought to create a whisky that matches Loki's unique personality with this 15 year old single malt. Unusually, some heavily peated casks were used for part of the maturation.
Nose: Salty sea spray jumps out the glass at first before revealing candied orange peel and a more refined version of the balsamic note present in other Highland Parks. Buttery toffee, raisins and oatiness. Or is it actually waxy with hints of ginger? What was that about shape-shifting again? Stewed apples and lemon zest now... and lime... and a little honey...
Palate: A hit of sweet smoke from the peated cask maturation gives way to cinnamon, ginger and increasingly nutmeg with marmalade. Slippery. (No really!)
Finish: Milk chocolate, ginger, a little marzipan before the toasted cloves that Highland Park promise make a late appearance.
Overall: This is a great dram. For the full 'Loki' effect I would actually advise not adding water even at 47.8% abv but doing so will reveal yet more notes (aniseed, marzipan, more ginger). The enigmatic nature is certainly good fun if not quite as dramatic as made out.

So I wipe off my bottle with a damp cloth and the letters come with it. Now it is H hl nd P rk and it is a whisk because there is no longer a Y. Oh and I am in the US and the 750ML is now 75 ml. Has anyone ever encountered this with the LOKI or any other bottle in the series. I guess it is no longer collectable, I drank one bottle and was saving this one but I guess no longer shall that be the case. Very disappointed that Highland Park would have silk screened paint that was not TOP QUALITY. Comments would be appreciated.
