Highland Park Valkyrie
This is a mysterious product. It has packaging designed by a Danish designer-cum-reality-TV-star who is sometimes described as a “modern day viking”. It depicts a Valkyrie holding a drinking horn. The whisky is bottled at 45.9% alcohol by volume and is the first in a series called Viking Legends that commemorates the fact that Orkney (where the whisky is made) was once part of a Viking kingdom.
The whisky is very good by all accounts – receiving 99/100 at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, and favourably reviewed by a number of bloggers.see less
