Hjarta, a specially selected 12 year old cask strength Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, which was produced for the Scandinavian market. Bottled 2009, one of 3924 bottles. 70cl, 58.1% volume, in wooden presentation box.
Hjarta is the ancient Norse word for heart. Orkney was under Nordic rule until 1468 when it was gifted to Scotland. This limited edition celebrates their rich cultural heritage
Nose: Very fruity, cherries, pineapple, green apple, cheesecake, oak. Lusciously sweet.
Palate: Initially creamy caramel. Then the rich fruits come forward with the caramel playing the supportive role, almost coating the fruits. A bit of smoke wanders throughout. Robust flavors.
Finish: The unique Orkney peat comes forward, but a bit more restrained than other HP's. A faint hint of char. At the very end, there's any extremely subtle note of pineapple that the smoke almost covers up. Wish it were a bit longer, but interesting nonetheless.
