Even the toughest of liquor-sippers may be knocked-back by the strength of the 16-year single malt scotch whiskey, Thor from Highland Park.

Packing an alcohol content level of 52.1 percent, the stiff drink is described as tasting like "an explosion of aromatic smoke" with a "forceful" nose -- meaning it is definitely not for the faint of heart. Words like "pungent" and "forceful" are also tossed around on the company's website, building up the blend's flavor to be appealing only to the most seasoned of drinker.

Named after the Norse God of Thunder, the liquor is a special blend with a special-edition run of only 23,000 bottles worldwide. The bottle itself is housed in a casing as unique as the booze's flavor. Designed with Thor's hammer, the Mjolnir, in mind, the drink packs a serious punch -- in more ways than one.
