Bursting with the flavours of ripe cherries, bitter dark cocoa, fresh honeycomb and salted peat smoke, our 18 Year Old is full-bodied yet refined. It’s loved across the globe for its unique flavour profile, driven by the high ratio of first-fill sherry seasoned European and American oak casks that we use.
18 Year Old Viking Pride is the most consistently and highly awarded of our whiskies. In 2020, it received gold medals in both the International Spirits Challenge and The Scotch Whisky Masters and, in 2019 and 2018, it was awarded the Chairman’s Trophy for Best Island Malt in the Ultimate Spirits Challenge. Certainly one of the great heroes in our whisky family, 18 year Old Viking Pride would make a wonderful gift for the great hero in your family.
If you’re able to share a dram with your Dad this Father’s Day, we recommend you try 18 Year Old with a splash of spring water to release the flavours and, if you can, tune into our Senior Brand Ambassador, Martin Markvarden’s tasting video and compare the flavours you detect with the flavours he describes. Fancy your hand at a bit of mixology? Our deliciously decadent Cherry and Chocolate Old Fashioned amplifies the key flavour notes of this whisky and is heavenly paired with a square or two of the finest dark chocolate.
Add a little extra…
For the ultimate gift, why not include a Pride 18 Black T-Shirt and a set of our nine lovely ‘Peedie’ glasses – presented in a smart gift box, each glass bears one of the nine noble virtues which make up the code of honour that our Viking ancestors lived by. Skål!
