Highland Park Thor Scotch Whisky
The folks over at Topless Robot have gotten their hands on a bottle of Highland Park whisky called "Thor." They mention that it feels like a pretty obvious cash-in on the popularity of The Avengers, but we're big enough geeks that we find ourselves secretly hoping it's a reference to Starcraft's Thors. Maybe that's just because we like to picture ourselves piloting a giant mech while cradling a bottle of scotch.
The smell is smooth, earthy and sweet. The taste is likewise smooth, but with smoky hints of vanilla, a touch of honey, and a soft peatiness -- but it's still powerful, with a strong, clear finish with just enough spiciness that one might be tempted to liken to a powerful blow from Mjolnir if one were so inclined. If you think I'm ashamed for writing that, you're wrong -- because that's seriously the image that comes into my head when I drink it.
You had us at Mjolnir - though at $200 bucks a bottle we might have to do a little pillaging to afford a bottle. Read the full review at Topless Robot
; if you've got enough plunder, buy your bottle right from Highland Park
