Highland Park Odin Review

Highland park OdinThis Highland Park Odin is the fourth (and final) installment of the Valhalla series which also included Thor, Loki and Freya.

I really enjoyed a lot of this series with Freya being my preference from them all with the ex-bourbon maturation bringing out flavours that i reall enjoy from Highland Park and why i enjoy a number of the SMWS ones also.

Odin has more woody balsa notes as well as the gentle smoke and fruits, and although a perfectly good dram i don't think it's as good, personally, as the other three in the series.

Thanks to Highland Park for the official sample.
