Creamy, vanilla custard, brinta. Many citrus notes, lemon, grapefruit, orange, pomolo. Fresh vanilla sweetness and apple are definitely a high note here.

Palate
Pepper, vanilla, baking spice, lemon, creamy. Pastry notes from nose come through on palate, nicely balanced dram. Fresh citrus notes and creaminess, lemon curd and tropical fruit. Chocolate, coconut, and tropical fruits, and some malt notes.

Finish

Score
7,5 out of 10. This nose lets you think that you are standing a good French pastry. Filled with many sweet flavours and fruits. The palate continues very nicely on the notes from the nose. The finish lets you think a bit of a good lemon cheesecake. This is definitely a balanced, complex and full dram.

Highland Park about Freya
For the third release in the acclaimed Valhalla Collection, Highland Park has turned its attention to the mesmerizing Norse Goddess of Love, Freya. Continuing the tradition of reflecting the character and qualities of the Norse Gods in the whisky itself, Freya’s intriguing allure and feisty personality has inspired a full, rich and complex single malt with a lingering beguiling finish.
