Exploring the world of Single Malt Scotches

Highland Park Odin

Highland Park Odin-  Hide the women and children, the Vikings are landing on our shore.  If ever we’ve reviewed a more potent malt, it certainly escapes my memory.  This deep amber barbarian checks all the right boxes, massive vanilla and spice, powerful and salty nose, and full-bodied mouth feel.  The package’s dark wood cradle mimics a ship’s bow and the roughcast bottle really enhances the entire experience.  The intensity of this single malt is epic with a whiff of peat no doubt from the driftwood beach fire.  The finish is earthy and complex with a long lasting bite that perfectly suits this beast.   Delicious!……Search for this treasure and buy at least 2 bottles as the release is once and done.  The proof on this whisky is a potent 112 with a sweet sherry flavor that masks the power so use caution with your pour. The malt was aged for 16 years and the time in casks did nothing to dull the intensity, thank goodness.  Rated a swashbuckling island worthy 9

    Ken,

    One of your best reviews. Really enjoyed it and perhaps we add it to the list for our next tasting which I am working on with Jim.

    Thanks,
