Highland Park Dark Origins
70cl / 46.8%
Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
A sherried release from Highland Park, Dark Origins is a combination of 80% first fill sherry casks (of which 60% is European oak and 20% American) and 20% refill sherry. A dark expression which fits in with the distillery's origins – founder Magnus Eunson being a smuggler who worked in the darkness of night.

Tasting Notes by Rocky
Nose: Initial spiritiness burns off to reveal a swathe of chocolatey notes (both milk and dark) combined with cherries, toffee and hints of butterscotch
Palate: The dark chocolate is more prominent with black-pepper spice and hints of fig, prune and orange zest. There's a whack of smoke running through the centre with sweetness at either side
Finish: The chocolate slowly dissipates to leave the sweet smoke
Colour: Rich mahogany
Nose: Sherried spice and ripe bananas combine with roasted hazelnuts and baked apple
Palate: Well-balanced, dry peat at first mellowing out to maraschino cherries, warm dark chocolate entices the palate
Finish: Enduring sweet smoke
