Whisky Reviews for Highland Park Viking Tribe

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.40 points

  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    Compaired to the 10YO Viking Scars or 12YO Viking Honour this is a few bob more. But for that money (disregard the +€100 shoplinks, this is available at £30) you get 6% extra which really make a difference.
    That extra punch makes it a lot bolder and lifts it considerably.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Sweet, zesty, lemon.
      Not much peat, but there's sherry.
      Not refined, sherry notes are actually a little "rough",
      musky, stale dry raisins.
      Leather and tobacco mixed with damp wood.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Good texture, almost oily.
      Arrives sweet, then citric.
      First sip feels a bit thin, but at 46% it recovers nicely.
      Yellow fruits giving way to growing pepper and chocolate bisquits.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Taste fades a bit too quick, a little drying wood.
      Peppery warmth is very long though.

  2. Arquebus scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nose touch of HP Peat & damp wood dominates, some sweeter over ripe fruit notes, occasional whiffs of sherry, but you have to work to find them. Opens up with hints of lemon zest/ eau de cologne.
    Suffering from chill-filtration?
    Taste: balanced sweet, dry pleasing bitterness in the finish.
    Thin in body/ short on finish. Underwhelming!
