For the third release in the acclaimed Valhalla Collection, Highland Park has turned its attention to the mesmerizing Norse Goddess of Love, Freya.
Continuing the tradition of reflecting the character and qualities of the Norse Gods in the whisky itself, Freya’s intriguing allure and feisty personality has inspired a full, rich and complex single malt with a lingering beguiling finish.
The scotch presents with aromas of Almond and Madagascan vanilla. Hints of white chocolate followed by candied cherries makes way for a vibrant wave of mango and melon, riding upon a cloud of cream soda. On the palate, flavors of 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. The finish is complex and beautiful providing lingering spice and soft peat smoke intertwined with soft orchard fruits, toasted coconut and a light char, providing a rounded depth and allowing this whisky to soar.
