Highland Park Viking Pride 18 year old, 46%

Price: $186 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This is one of four new additions to the portfolio in 2018, and is the pick of the bunch. It is a ‘marrying-strength' variant of the 18 year old, relaunched in 2017. Treacle tart, sweet woodsmoke, and milky coffee on the robust nose. The palate is voluptuous, with tangy orange, malt, and more woodsmoke. Milk chocolate and smoky Jaffa oranges in the finish.
