Loki, the second release from Highland Park's Valhalla Collection and the follow up to the globally sold out Thor.
Loki is a mischievous trickster and causes problems for other Norse Gods on Asgard, Odin and Thor. Like its namesake, this whisky is unpredictable and impulsive, echoing the formidable weather of the Orkney Islands.
Nose: Salty banana bread, sultana and raisin breakfast bars dropped into a bonfire, buttery gingernut biscuits, smoked toffee.
Palate: Spicy tropical fruit, buttery sultana loaf with smoked marmalade with hints of ginger and waxy notes.
Finish: White chocolate, smoked banana toffee, aromatic spices, charred pineapple.
A shape shifting HP offering that flirts with an extra smoke (Some heavily peated casks were used for Loki) influence but never far away from just being another enjoyable release from the most northern of all Scottish distilleries.
