Highland Park Valknut Bottling Note

Another Viking Legend has arrived from Highland Park! The second release in the series created in partnership with Danish designer Jim Lyngvild is Valknut. The spirit used for this single malt features a small portion of Orkney-grown Tartan barley, and was matured predominantly in American oak sherry seasoned casks. Slightly smokier than your standard Highland Park whisky, so if you like a peaty treat, you've found a great option right here.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Warming peat smoke rises, paired with fresh vanilla, thyme honey and sandalwood.

Palate: Toasted barley and fennel seed, with a kick of cinnamon underneath.

Finish: Flamed orange peel, a very light touch of BBQ char, gingerbread and nutmeg.

Highland Park Valknut Reviews

Very nice

I bought this as I liked HP 12yr, i wanted to try a peaty whisky and this hit the spot. It has a strong smokey initial taste and dark caramel taste with a nice peaty aftertaste not full on. Really nice drink

Yet to try it....but I will forever be a lover of Highland Park.....have been for years...introduced to this, the king of Malt Whisky, through the pages of The late Michael Jackson's books.

Awesome! Buy some.

I received a bottle of this 21062020... I can and will say this, absolutely bloody amazing. I'm not a posh twat who goes on about notes and cherries and vanilla etc, I'm a normal dude that likes Whisky. This is not Laphroig peaty, its peaty, ish. Is it enjoyable to drink? Yes, yes it is. Would I have it again? Yes, I would. Tt2020.

Brought this for my husband, and he has said it is a beautiful drink

Worth a try.

Peatier than typical HP but not medicinal peat like Islay malts. A decent variation of HP. Worth a try.

2nd February 2020

Viking greatness

Love this. Oaky, toasty with a citrus inish. Lively with a bite.

Stunning smoky taste

Delightful, the level of peat after taste. This made it difficult to not just have one more dram. We will visit this again

Smokier than a typical HP. I am about halfway through the bottle and this is really growing on me. A nice winter dram for sure. Sherry note is there but understated. Needsnanfewnminutesnto open up. I’ll give it 4 stars for now but it continues to rise on my rating scale.

Wooo, nice!!

I like that! The attack is very fruity and then you have this famous dry Smoke comin'. A final with dark chocolate and spice, very nice. It is quiet similar to the Amrut peated, almost a copy and paste... Funny.

Wonderfully balanced smoke.

The smoke urges it way towards being overpowering while never doing so. It is wonderfully balanced with suble peat and spices and a hint of vanilla. It's a bit on the expensive side, but a great buy on a discount or as a gift.

Somewhat Lacking...

Didnt find much in the way of flavour or interest from the Valknut sample I had within my Whisky Advent Calendar. Much prefer the standard 12 from HP.
I do normally go for a punchy Islay though.
BUT... it wasn’t horrible by any means. 3.5 stars.

17th December 2018

Solid. Full bodied and complex

First! Solid offering from Highland Park, reminds me of a peated Campbeltown, kind of dry. Full bodied, good dose of smoke and peat, nice bit of sherry but not too much.
