This bold single malt accentuates the Intense Aromatic Smokiness from our local Hobbister Moor peat melded with hints of Warm Spicy Fruit Cake which came from a long maturation in Sherry Seasoned Oak casks.
Dragon Legend is inspired by the ancient tales of the Vikings who ruled our Orkney island home for over 600 years.
For our ancestors, dragon were both feared and revered, possessing mystical powers but representing the forces of evil. According to legend, the Viking warrior Sigurd who – with great bravery and cunning – slew evil Fafnir, licked the dragon’s blood from his thumb and received powerful gifts of Wisdom and Prophecy.
With Dragon Legend we pay tribute to the virtues of Courage and Perseverance that lie at the heart of the Viking Code of Honour – and at the heart of our distillery – inspiring this distinctive and unconventional expression of Highland Park.
The Orkney Single Malt with Viking Soul
…The Earth shook all about him, and he snorted forth venom on all the way before him as he went: but Sigurd neither trembled nor was afraid at the roaring of him.
