Highland Park Valknut


Created using a higher proportion of our local peated malt and predominantly matured in sherry seasoned oak casks to give this whisky its smoky, sweet flavour, VALKNUT is the second in our Viking Legend series, celebrating our rich Nordic ancestry here on Orkney. Valknut means ‘knot of those slain in battle’ and its symbol of three interlinked triangles appears on numerous artefacts from the Viking Age. The symbol is closely associated with the Norse god, Odin, who guided the spirits of the dead to the underworld and back to the world of the living, and is believed to represent the transition from life to death or the connection between earthly life and heavenly life.

Vikings legend, round 2

After the initial release of Valkyrie which is absolutely outstanding and something very special, I have had high hopes for Valknut. Unfortunately, the second release falls short of the expectations. It seems donewhat disjointed, thin, and pales in comparison to Valkyrie. On it’s own, however, it’s not bad, and actually, better than average. It’s just when you compare it to its predecessor, It simply cannot compete. My suggestion: stick on on Valkyrie since it’s a limited release.
