Whisky Reviews for Highland Park Valfather

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.77 points

  1. Fabian scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Third and last of the Jim Lyngvild series (Valkyrie, Valknut, Valfather).
    From those 3 I liked Valfather the most, but non of these 3 belong to my favorite Highland Parks!

  2. SherryDrone scored this whisky 85 points Newbie

    Quite strong peat for a HP. Vanilla pods, burnt wood & some dry sweetness. Pears, apples if I may add. On the palate, the peat isn’t as strong. A lot of oakiness (reused casks) and mild bitterness. A peppery note. Apples & Creme Brulee. A touch of coastal salineness almost reminding a Bunnahabhain 12. I loved the finish. Medium long if I may say. Burnt wood, pepperiness and a bit of gentle fruitiness. This HP is not muted. It is not subtle but bustling with flavours. It lacks the classic bourbon cask HP taste but definitely a nice attempt. The bottle and the pack have exceptional art work.

  4. Whisky-Fancier scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Too one-dimensional, too strong unbound oak, too little smoke for what was announced. Probably multi-used barrels, which have given in the end only bitterness.
