  • Excerpt: The malty quality to the whisky isn't covered by the fruit. The finish is on the sweet-smoky-meaty side.

  • Excerpt: look, I know I should write lukewarm comments because of the price, because of the unlikely packaging (sure it’s all a matter of taste) and so on, but I’m sorry, I love it. Now, who’s that Loki? A girl? What’s sure is that she beats Thor in my book, fair and square.

  • Excerpt: Named for a particularly “treacherous and mischievous” character in Norse mythology, it makes sense that instead of a gentle fade, this Scotch grows brawnier and more drying with repeated sips.

  • Excerpt: Ultimately, Loki has its moments, but as Scotch goes it’s got a few too many hands in a few too many fires.

  • Excerpt: Interesting, diverse and enjoyable. Mostly sweet, some smoke, some salinity. I think more smoke would have helped this out but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

  • Intro:

    The second release in Highland Parks Valhalla Collection following last years Thor release. Loki is Thor's adoptive brother, a mischievous soul, possibly even a shape-shifter and certainly an enigmatic character.

  • Nose:

    Buttered biscuits, sweet wine. Caramel, offee, salt, faint smoke. Almost a salted caramel feel to it.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel, sweet caramel. Peat smoke, pepper, faint salinity. Almost mildly jammy with some citrus. The peat is mostly ashy smoke, not too vegetal or bandage-y.

  • Finish:

    Long, peppery, smoky. Nice and sweet. This blends pretty well overall.

  • Overall:

    Interesting, diverse and enjoyable. Mostly sweet, some smoke, some salinity. I think more smoke would have helped this out but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

  • Score:

    6
