Spirits of The Past
Now this is how you highball.

It's a highball kind of weekend.
It might technically be Odin's Day but I've always had more if an affinity for the tricksters The Highland Park Loki is a 15 year old single malt that was the second release in the "Valhalla" series. A set of four limited release single malts that pays homage to the Orkney islands Viking influences. Having been aged in heavily peated casks the Loki has a unique character amongst the Highland Park line up. NOSE: Sea salt, candied orange and dried dark fruit PALETTE: Toffee, cardamom, cinnamon, and a touch of smoke FINISH: Long with a hint of chocolate, clove, and a lingering oak
Always watching those wash lines. 📸: @shannonshootscocktails
