18 Year Old Viking Pride
ABV : 46%
Volume : 700ml
Three is definitely not a crowd in this brilliant marriage of three distinctive cask types, bottled at 46% marrying strength to ensure a rich and full-bodied finish.
Tangy fresh ginger and sun-ripened oranges come to fore, driven by the sherry seasoned first-fill European oak hogsheads, while the ex-bourbon casks bring soft ribbons of vanilla cream with a drizzle of honey. Refill casks, balancing the influence of oak from the first-fill casks, leave just a hint of lightly toasted oak and soften the whisky’s smoky, spicy complexity.
Created from just 55 hand-selected casks laid down in November 1998, this is a fine example of our battle for balance and our desire for harmony in a whisky that has truly come of age.
