Description

According to legend, Vikings who met a fine and honourable death were marked out by the symbol of the Valknut and spirited away from the mortal world to the heavenly realm of Valhalla.

 
Created using a higher proportion of our local peated malt and predominantly matured in sherry seasoned oak casks to give this whisky its smoky, sweet flavour, Valknut is the second in the Viking Legend series, celebrating our rich Nordic ancestry here on Orkney.
 
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.
 

Tasting Notes

Nose: Toasted vanilla pods, cracked black pepper, oak shavings, aniseed, aromatic smoke.

Palate: Sweet, aromatic cloves join forced with tangy hints of aniseed.

Finish: Intensely balances, bold and courageous, leaves a lingering memory of aromatic peat smoke and sweet spices.
