Highland Park Valkyrie Bottling Note

Valkyrie is the first in Highland Park's Viking Legend series in partnership with Danish designer Jim Lyngvild who can trace his lineage back to Viking times. It's made with approximately 50% fully peated stock (Highland Park's peated floor malt is usually mixed with unpeated malt that's bought in at a ratio of 1:4 before mashing), but of course with Highland Park this means Orcadian peat and classic heather smoke notes.

This edition offers a smokier Highland Park experience, but the smoke is still balanced. Highland Park Valkyrie received a score of 99 Points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, making it an "Extraordinary, Ultimate Recommendation".

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Chocolate and some nutmeg off the bat before the smoke develops, balanced by dried apricot, plum and, increasingly, zesty orange too.

Palate: Plump dried fruits are complimented by vanilla, dried apple and waves of smoke and wood spice.

Finish: Liquorice and more fruit too, plus a return of some chocolatey notes.

Overall: More pronounced smoke than you’d find in a regular Highland Park, as you'd expected, but it never threatens to dominate proceedings – this is no chimney of a dram, far from it. The smoke is always balanced.

Highland Park Valkyrie Reviews

One of my favourite Highland Parks

Simply beautiful

When can you ship to us

The Smokey flavor that highland park has is amazing and the mix of the smoothness with vanilla note is awesome I can’t find any where I live but I was able to try a glass today

True to the offering

I would agree with the balance commentary. Looking for the smoke HPark is known for, and found it mixed in the other flavours. Vanilla comes through like you bit a vanilla bean, all a part of the master plan I assume. But that’s why I bought it and would recommend it.

Probably my favorite and definitely my first loved Highland Park dram!

From start to finish ... what a great whisky!

Worth the price, unlike most other HP

Is it a good whisky? Yes.
Is it worth the price? Yes.
Is it possible I may like other HP ones in the same price range (more or less)? Yes.

It doesn't taste young at all, it's a well balanced experiment by the master blenders of Highland Park I rather like.

Having read some of the reviews it makes me chuckle at all the different tastes out there. So at the end of the day it all boils down too personal taste. Never mind all the fancy stuff do you like it yes or no will you buy another Bottle yea or no. Slainte.> YES I Will.

Stick with the standard issues

It’s drinkable, but not up to HPs normally high standards. Tastes very young (as another reviewer here noted) and just doesn’t have the depth, complexity, and refinement of usual HP. The peat has a rather sharp edge to it, and does not come across as particularly well balanced relative to the flavor of the rest of the malt. It’s okay, just not great. Of course the regular HP is so outstanding that with the bar set so high, this malt just suffers by comparison. Stick with the standard versions.

Thanks, Andrea!

Recommended to me, and since I’ve enjoyed other HP expressions, decided to give this a try.
A very complex nose - I got a sweet, dried fruit sensation with some apricot, green vegetables, and, of all things, dried beef!
The palate had bittersweet chocolate, nuts, vanilla and a lot of wood.
The finish was long, with wood and leather, and then the smoke hits you (very pleasantly!).
After a few drops of water, citrus fruit and vanilla become more pronounced, and even more wood. Again, the smoke gets to you later.
A very enjoyable dram indeed.

Heart of Highland Park peat

This is a young whisky with a slight metallic aroma on the bottom of the tongue. An alcoholic smell with it at first, but with a drop of water, the very particular Highland Park peat shows up. This is exactly what natural peat smells

I'm dancing on the table

I really enjoyed it, 4 stars cause of the priced based on Master Of Malt, 4,5 if it could be a little less pricey.
