Which echoes the fearsome contours of a traditional Viking long ship.
Highland Park Thor Valhalla Collection Tasting Notes;
Nose: 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: Initially dry, with fiery gingerbread then vanilla, blackberries, fresh mango, peach and hints of cinnamon.
As its big flavours swirl around the mouth, some softer, sweeter notes develop, unexpected layer of complexity and depth.
Finish: lingering notes of sweet vanilla and an intense spiciness.
