Tasting notes
Nose: A spirited lift of dried bitter orange whichquickly turns into lemon peels. Cardamom notes trick then tease the nose, before an enticing hit of gingerbread develops. With water, liquorice and aromatic smoke are both unleashed. Palate: The true shape-shifting ability of Loki springs to life on the palate: its waxy texture is amplified by an intense smoke that doesn't appear on the nose, shattering the light citrusy illusion of the aroma. All is not what it seems. The smoke fades as liquorice and rich spiced apple flavours come out to play. Lemon and grapefruit are consistent throughout this elusive, yet intriguing character. With a touch of water, lingering notes of melted dark chocolate over spent embers leave a soft smoky impression. Finish: As Loki departs, he leaves behind toasted cloves, hickory smoke and soft vanilla. It is constantly changing, from appearance to finish. Loki is an enigma and truly another whisky of the gods.

Smoked flowers and dried fruit on the intensely aromatic nose. In the mouth the flavor starts out sweet and earthy, quickly turning to spice and smoke. Cigar box flavors linger long on the leathery finish.

The second release in the lauded Highland Park Valhalla Collection, this limited edition shows caramel, toffee and hazelnut between smoldering waves of peat. Named for a particularly ’treacherous and mischievous’ character in Norse mythology, it makes sense that instead of a gentle fade, this Scotch grows brawnier and more drying with repeated sips.

Wine maker notes
There are classic traces of sweetness and spice, but it has been matured in both traditional Spanish sherry casks and also some heavily peated casks, giving it a smoky punch, while retaining a light colour. The finish is intriguing and complex. It is a whisky constantly changing, chameleon-like, from appearance to finish and the few lucky and expert palates who have savoured it describe it as “enigmatic” and “truly another whisky of the Gods.”
