Valfather is the final whisky in a series of three special edition Viking Legend releases. Inspired by Odin, the mightiest and most complex of the Norse gods, who's associated with wisdom, sorcery, poetry, death, wolves, and ravens. An intriguingly complex figure...It only follows that his whisky should be just as complex...
Winning Gold in the 2020 World Whisky Awards, Valfather is Highland Park's most peated whisky to date and matured entirely in refill casks to ensure that all that peat is balanced with subtle layers of flavor and character. You'll taste sweet apple, fragrant pear, crème brulée, toasted cedarwood and smoked paprika, hence the term 'stickysmoke.'
The packaging for the whole series was created by Jim Lyngvild, a Danish designer and artist of international renown, whose great grandfather 36 generations ago was Ragnvald Eysteinsson, the first Earl of the Orkney Islands.
"Valfather is the smokiest of the series. As well as our hallmark aromatic peat smoke, its taste profile is creamy vanilla, toasted cedar wood with a long floral aromatic finish offset by notes of crisp and sweet fragrant pear." - Master Whisky Maker, Gordon Motion
