  • Excerpt: The body of the whisky then shows a soft fruit-filled center. The finish is slightly bitter with spiced dusted walnuts. This would make a great nightcap.

  • Excerpt: Very fine, rather powerful, but not very ‘polished’. The oak’s spices are a tad loud for my taste. Was that Odin’s personality?

  • Intro:

    This was supposed to be a mystery, but became an unmystery about half way through when the person holding the reveal sheet accidentally revealed the answer. So I give you, a half mystery. But a whole review. Math is weird in whiskey land.

  • Nose:

    Earthy, funky peat. Minearility, some BBQ. Really dirty earth. Sweet vanilla, caramel, toffee, honey. Some stewed fruits, thick syrupy strawberry. Really funky, in a good way.

  • Taste:

    Thick, syrupy sweet. Some pepper, honey, vanilla, stewed fruits. Earthy peat, some smoke, savory bbq. Faint iodine. Really aggressive peat for HP, but it blends with the wine notes very well.

  • Finish:

    Long, some heat, but complex. Earthy peat blended with syrupy stewed fruits.

  • Overall:

    This is Highland Park Odin. Post, you are a generous man. It is very good. Damn good. I like it a lot. I'd never spend $$ on this, so this is a real treat. Now to hunt my final Highland Park wish list bottle - a 15+ yr, cask strength, 100% first fill sherry or madeira. Its out there...probably not. Maybe? But I still want it.
