Den nye serie på 4 forskellige flasker fra Highland Park, som hedder The Valhalla Collection. De symboliserer Orkney's ældgamle bånd til Skandinavien. Først kom "Thor, God of Thunder" - den var 16 år gammel i fuld fadstyrke og præsenteret i en flot trækasse skabt med henvisninger til fronten af et vikingeskib.


Hvis nogen kan udfordre Thor, er det
LOKI – den snarrådige!

I 2012 blev vi præsenteret for den første af de fire limiterede whiskyer fra den guddommelige Valhalla Collection, Thor – en kraftfuld sag med en spiritusprocent på 52,1. Nu udfordres Thor til at sænke sin tordnende hammer til fordel for jætten Loke. En snarrådig, snu ræv, som med sit charmerende ydre kan manipulere selv den, der er stærkest i troen.

Highland Park præsenterer nu den anden af de fire fantastiske whiskyer i den guddommelige Valhalla Collection; en serie af unikke whiskyer inspireret af de legendariske nordiske guder. S

LOKI CHALLENGES THOR TO LAY DOWN HIS MIGHTY HAMMER
Highland Park unveils the second whisky in the acclaimed Valhalla Collection

Loki, one of the most treacherous and mischievous characters in Norse mythology has turned on his adopted and earnest brother Thor for taking all the glory in last year’s whisky launch stakes by trying his hand at creating his very own Highland Park expression. Highland Park Loki, a 15 year old limited edition single malt bottled at 48.7% abv, comes housed in the same unique and award winning wooden frame as Thor, echoing the fearsome contours of a traditional Viking long ship.

Loki is the second in The Valhalla Collection of four unique whiskies from Highland Park, taking inspiration from the legendary Nordic gods of old and continues the ground breaking achievement of creating Thor – a 16 year old malt actually designed around the personality traits of an individual. The Orkney whisky maker has now created a unique flavour profile for its follow up. While unquestionably Highland Park, this time it mirrors the unpredictable, shape shifting LOKI character and as with the trickster god of fire himself, all is not as it seems.

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.”

Gerry Tosh, Global Marketing Manager, says,
“Thor was the first of its kind, a true quality malt built around an individual’s personality. This proved massively successful and it sold out globally. LOKI will continue to take Highland Park and The Valhalla Collection into new territory. While everyone will recognise the definite ‘Highland Park‐ness’ of this 15 year old single malt, it will be the unexpected and surprisingly smoky dynamics that will really get palates excited and mouths talking. This is unlike any expression that has come before and will beguile and fascinate with its complexity and trickery. Remember, all is not as it seems.”

Tasting Notes:
Nose: A spirited lift of dried bitter orange which quickly 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.

Inspired by the mischievous and mercurial Nordic god, the amber liquid of the newly released Loki seems to capture the unpredictable shape-shifting nature of its namesake. Matured in both Spanish sherry and heavily peated casks, the flavors offer sweetness and spice with a layer of smoke that distinguishes the Loki bottling from classic Highland Park whiskies. "The whisky transforms itself through nosing and tasting into a classic Highland Park expression but with a twist. From citrus on the nose to the puff of smoke on the tongue then a glorious combination of fruit and vanilla on the finish, Loki is a testament to the skill of Highland Park's whisky maker Max McFarlane," brand ambassador Martin Daraz tells us.

Following Thor as the second of four rare whisky offerings in the Valhalla Whisky of the Gods series from Highland Park, Loki comes housed in the same wooden frame resembling a Viking long ship that helped its predecessor sell out rapidly. The northernmost distillery in Scotland, Highland Park was established in 1798 on the remote isle of Orkney—a fitting setting for this seafaring package. Though the Nordic god Loki was known for creating discord and distraction among the Nordic gods, this Loki is more likely to put a smile on the faces of whisky collectors around the world



OM:
Highland Park Thor 16 Y.O. har en fyldig ravfarve med toner af glødende jern. Aromaerne er koncentrerede og kraftfulde med noter af røg, frisk ingefær, antik kobber, kogte blommer og gylden sirup. Tilsættes vand opleves noter af jord, ligesom i en have efter en regnbyge om sommeren. Paletten har en stor styrke, som intensiverer og vedholder smagsoplevelsen. I det første indtryk opleves honningkager, hvorefter vanilje, brombær, frisk mango, fersken og kanel tager over. Som smagen begynder at hvirvle rundt i munden, udvikles blødere og sødere noter, som giver Thor et ekstra uventet lag af kompleksitet og dybde. Finishen efterlader dvælende noter af sød vanilje og intense krydderier.

Highland Park Thor 16 Y.O. er den første udgave af Highland Parks fantastiske Valhalla Collection, i en række på fire unikke whisky, som udgives én gang årligt, med inspiration fra de legendariske nordiske guder.

Highland Park Thor 16 Y.O. er til ære for den store kriger Thor og en fejring af Highland Parks nordiske kulturelle arv. Denne limited edition er omgivet af en unik træramme, som afspejler de frygtindgydende konturer fra de traditionelle vikingeskibe.

Highland Park er fremstillet på verdens nordligste destilleri på de legendariske Orkney Øer.
Highland Park opføres I 1798 på netop de øer, som efter sigende havde tilhørt en kendt whiskysmugler.
Smugleren Magnus Eunson nød godt af en stærk position inden for kirken, og kunne derfor passe sin sidegeschæft i al uforstyrrethed. Hvem ville mon finde på at søge efter den forbudte vare under prædikestolen?

Highland Parks unikke karakter skyldes den tørv, der anvendes som brændsel ved tørring af kornet. Netop denne tørv har i århundreder absorberet salte bølger, og afgiver et lyngagtigt anstrøg til whiskyen. Whiskyen lagres på egetræsfade i mindst 12 år. Lidt efter lidt modnes whiskyen og den fyrige smag mildnes og whiskyen opnår en usædvanlig blød karakter.
En varsom og tidskrævende proces som garanterer, at denne whisky når sin perfektion. Michael Jackson, forfatter til mange kendte bøger om whisky beskriver Highland
