The second release of what will be the Viking Legend series following on from the Highland Park Valkyrie.
A more phenolic peat level than the Valkyrie and aged in predominantly Sherry seasoned American oak casks with a small amount of Orkney grown Tartan barley used in the mash which adds to a more smokier and lingering sweet and spicy style of Highland Park.
Valknut translates as "knot of those killed in battle" and the bottle and its packaging has been designed by a famous Danish designer, Jim Lyngvild.
Nose: Toasted vanilla pods, cracked black pepper, oak shavings, cloves, aniseed and aromatic smoke.
Palate: Sweet, aromatic cloves join forces with tangy notes of aniseed.
Finish: Intensely balanced, bold and courageous, leaves a lingering memory of aromaic peat smoke and sweet spices.
