TASTING NOTE: ... golden amber in color with a slightly sweet and fruity nose. Peach, vanilla, and berry intermingle with a soft malt note. There’s the slightest hint of peat underneath … The midpalate is a unique oasis of sorts for such a high proof spirit, with an unexpected softness that helps add to the slightly puzzling complexity of this spirit. For fans of Highland Park, Thor is going to be an absolute treat ... it will be well worth jumping on a bottle of this before it vanishes.
