Valfather is the final whisky in a series of three special edition Viking Legend releases. Inspired by Odin, the mightiest, and most complex, of the Norse gods, he’s associated with wisdom, sorcery, poetry, death, wolves, and ravens. An intriguingly complex figure... it only follows that his whisky should be as complex, but we’ll try and describe it simply.
Winning gold in the 2020 World Whisky Awards, Valfather is our most peated whisky to date and matured entirely in our finest refill casks to ensure that all that peat is balanced with subtle layers of flavour and character.
You’ll taste the syrupy sweet apple, fragrant pear, crème brûlée, toasted cedarwood, and smoked paprika. If we had to make up a word for such a flavour, it’d be Stickysmoke.
The packaging for each release in the Viking Legend series was created by Jim Lyngvild, a Danish designer and artist of international renown, whose 36th great grandfather was Ragnvald Eysteinsson, the first Earl of the Orkney Islands.
