Created using a higher proportion of local peated malt and predominantly matured in sherry 'seasoned' oak casks to give this whisky its smoky, sweet flavour. Highland Park Valknut is the second in the Viking Legend series.
Valknut means ‘knot of those slain in battle’ and its symbol of three interlinked triangles appears on numerous artefacts from the Viking Age. The symbol is closely associated with the Norse god, Odin, who guided the spirits of the dead to the underworld and back to the world of the living, and is believed to represent the transition from life to death or the connection between earthly life and heavenly life.
