Highland Single Malt Scotch "Matured in the finest Spanish Oloroso sherry casks and bottled at 46%, this sublime richly sherried malt is truly unforgettable. Bright deep gold with a tawny center. Sweet aromatics of fudge and muscovado sugar. Fruit compote and glacier morello cherries provide added complexity. Rich dark and seductive. Remarkable flavours of stewed fruits and all-spice marry together with classical aged Oloroso and toasted walnut bread and chocolate orange. Tremendously complex and long finish." -The Distillery

The long-awaited fourth and final entry in Highland Park's The Valhalla Collection. Odin (aka 'The Furious One'); is a rich and dark whisky with the distillery's trademark sweet and gently peaty character. Aged for 16 years in a combination of first-fill sherry casks and refill hogsheads; this is one not to miss. The Powerfufl aroma suggest; molasses and chamomile tea om the palate

Wine Enthusiast 92 points - The powerful aroma suggests gingerbread, molasses and chamomile tea. On the palate, the sticky-toffee note is enveloped by an intense wallop of peat. An undercurrent of Sherry and gingerbread sweetness runs underneath the smoke, entwining into a mesquite-like smoky-sweet and spicy finish. A splash of water coaxes out a subtle bacon note. Aged 16 years, this limited edition is named for the Norse god Odin and comes packaged in a wooden frame intended to evoke the contours of a traditional Viking long ship.  (Dec 2015)

Whiskey Advocate 88 points - Odin is the fourth and final release in Highland Park’s Valhalla Collection. It has been aged in a combination of first-fill Spanish oak sherry casks and refill hogsheads, with the former predominating. The nose yields cocoa powder, insistent spice, subtle sweet smoke, heather honey, and rum-and-raisin fudge. Rich and fruity on the palate, with lively dark spices, plus treacle and peat smoke. The lingering finish initially offers smoky sherry, then dries with licorice and oak. (17,000 bottles) (Summer 2015) Reviewed by: Gavin Smith (Aug 2015)

GLENMORANGIE NECTAR D'OR


"Great to see French casks that actually complement a whisky - so rare! An exercise in outrageously good sweet-dry balancing"

It is here, in hand selected wine barriques from Sauternes: the most famous and ancient sweet wine growing region of France, that this whisky develops its rich, spicy and dessert-like flavours. Non chill-filtered for additional aroma and mouthfeel.

Nose: Lime and orange rind, sultanas and dates give a rich fruity flavour laced with tantalising spices of coconut and nutmeg.
Palate: Ginger, nutmeg and toasted almonds bring a deep, warming taste interwoven with a syrupy lemon meringue and honeycomb middle.
Finish: Long and lusciously sweet finish with lemon zest, white chocolate, vanilla and traces of ginger and nutmeg.
