Dram Review: Highland Park Valknut

[46.8%・NAS・Bottled in 2018・Official Bottling・Limited Release]

Nose:

Some gritty notes of barley husk to go with vanilla and custard, a lemony note signifying the presence of some distant diluted fortified. A vague smoke adding to the generic profile.

Palate & Finish:

At 46.8%, the dram conveys a decent thickness with its sweet, jammy nature. Baked walnuts drenched in maple syrup at first followed by a spicy punch of cinnamon and chocolate dust with the cigarette smoke dragging the oak and peat on.

Thoughts:

Mostly consist of younger casks I suspect but vatted together this carries a somewhat respectable mouthfeel with oomph.
