Highland Park Viking Pride 18 Years Old
The 2017 relaunch of one of whisky connoisseur all-time favourites, Highland Park 18 Year Old Viking Pride is one of the most consistently excellent malt whiskies of the past decades.
The bottle enjoyed a redesign in 2017, receiving livery inspired by the wood carvings from Urnes Stave Church and a new sub-name, "Viking Pride". The Orkney single malt remains the same as before - rich, complex and supremely delicious.
One of the most awarded whiskies, Highland Park 18 Year Old Viking Pride is considered by many as 'Best Spirit in the World'.
Nose: A profusion of ripe floral notes and fresh blossom with a delectable fruit salad. Notes of honeyed exotic fruits with a little botrytis.
Palate: Creamy and full with fruit conserves and espresso. A creaminess with cinnamon and allspice. Notes of toffee with thick black forest honey with a touch more citrus.
Finish: Long and well sugared with a herbal edge.
