This whisky from the Highland Park Warrior Series is focused around herald Fairhair, a Norwegian King who established himself in the Orkney Islands, where the distillery lies. Harald was well revered for his army, nicknamed Beserkers, known for their dedicated use of their shield in battle, for tearing through enemies. Such was this connection that the shield design adorns the bottle of the Highland Park whiskey.
It has a mix of 50/50 American and European oak casks which give this whisky its full gold colour. The aroma from Harald gives off sherry fruits, raisins, sultanas and smoky tones.
Smooth and sweet in taste with apples, make for a delightful sensation on the palate. A warming finish with good length, Harald rewards the individual with a sweetness, spice and oak.
