10 year old single malt Scotch whisky from the Highland Park distillery on Orkney, presented in the heavily-Viking-inspired livery that was launched in 2017. This expression is normally found on mainland Europe, but it seems that some bottles have landed on our shores (presumably on some sort of longboat, considering all the Viking imagery connected to it).
Nose: Subtle Sherry influence, but balanced by heather-y smoke.
Palate: Ginger and waxy orange peel. Earthy peat with a another hint of Sherry sweetness buried underneath.
Finish: Sea salt and heather once again. A few herbaceous hints of coriander leaf and crushed black pepper.
