Based out of the Orkney Islands in the northernmost region of Scotland, malt whisky distillery Highland Park was founded in 1798 by Magnus Eunson, a direct descendant of Vikings.

Once a part of Denmark and Norway in the age of the Vikings, Orkney has a rich history of Nordic ancestry—something Highland Park has weaved into its whiskies. The first of three special edition whiskies to be released from the new Viking Legend series is Valkyrie.

A brightly amber-hued nectar that’s scented with green apples and ripening lemons, it carries notes of spicy, sweet, preserved ginger with a hint of liquorice and creamy vanilla.

Available at The Oaks Cellars for $163.
