One of Highland Park most peated whisky made. Highland Park Valfather refers to Odin, the king of the Norse Gods. It completes the Viking Legends trilogy from the distillery. This single malt is as powerful as Odin its self and if you love peated whiskies you need to try this one. Highland Park used a large proportion of their heavily peated malt in the production of this single malt. This is why it smells and taste smokey. More than we expect from Highland Park.
