THE VALHALLA COLLECTION CONCLUDES WITH THE ARRIVAL OF THE ALLFATHER, ODIN
The past 100 days has seen many of you join us on the road to Asgard #Odin100, sharing knowledge and wisdom to appease the Allfather’s appetite. Our long journey is finally at an end and the gates of Valhalla have been thrown open with the Allfather’s arrival. ODIN now joins the ranks of The Valhalla Collection, four stunning whiskies celebrating Highland Park’s Norse heritage. ODIN, the King of Asgard himself, joins Thor, Loki and the beautiful Freya to complete this stunning collection.
Creating a single malt to reflect the dominant characteristics of ODIN was no easy feat but the Highland Park whisky makers have excelled. The Valhalla Collection is the perfect example of how you can put the personality of a god in a glass. ODIN packs a mighty punch at 55.8% ABV but finds a happy balance between the god and the distillery’s signature Orcadian style resulting in a rich and undeniably powerful 16 year old single malt whisky.
|Colour:||Vivid burst of sunlight. Entirely natural in colour, this whisky is a glowing representation of Odin’s distinct and mighty character.|
|Nose:||This intense whisky possesses a fierce spice. Cinnamon bark and nutmeg rise from Odin’s spirit. Behind the spice, toasted walnuts smoulder with pulsating explosions of smoke. Odin cuts an ominous figure and this whisky is no different.|
|Palate:||A huge, powerful palate draws on the complexity of Odin’s character. Layers of peat uncover thousands of years of wisdom. Dense oak combines with rich charred walnuts.|
|Finish:||Throughout is a subtle sweetness, sharing the knowledge of well-seasoned sherry wines. Plums and soft fruit disappear into the dark as the peaty embers glow into a smoky finale.|
