More info: Einar was the joint Earl of Orkney from 1014. Renowned for often venturing on long voyages, he was relentless in his rule and associated with the giant axe featured on the malt’s label.
from the website: “Einar has been crafted as a tribute to one of the most feared and ruthless Vikings of his time. Driven by a heady mixture of peat smoke and American oak casks, the result is a whisky of bold complexity brought together with the addition of some broody spiciness.
