- Highland Park Freya
Highland Park Freya 15 Year Old Island single malt Scotch whiskey. Third release of the Valhalla Collection - a series of four limited edition bottlings representing Orcadian mythology with a healthy Scandinavia godly twist.
Bottled at full strength and presented in wooden frame which echoes the fearsome contours of a traditional Viking long ship.
Nose: Concentrated and forceful, with an explosion of aromatic smoke, pungent fresh ginger, antique copper, stewed plums, and golden syrup. With water, earthy notes emerge, like a garden after a heavy rain shower.
Palate: Orange peel, butterscotch and rose petals provide the sweetness along with orange blossom and ginger. Lively popping candy, lemongrass and tropical fruits are lightly shrouded in peat smoke.
Finish: Complex and beautiful, the finish gives lingering spice and soft peat smoke intertwined with soft orchard fruits, toasted coconut and a light char, providing a rounded depth and allowing this whiskey to soar.
