Highland Park Dark Origins Reviews
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

Its a black forest gateau in a glass. Lovely digestif.
just had a couple drams at the Luggage Room in London. lovely scotch. totally tasted butterscotch before reading any tasting notes
Light smoke, smooth finish
This is my happy place
I didn''t like this. I found too much sulphur on the finish.
Bought this at the distillery. I agree with the other reviewer''s notes. Quite Christmas cakey for a Highland Park and punchier. Hugely enjoyable.
Very pleasing. Abundant fruit and sherry notes and taste. Smoke and chocolate towards the finish. Very nice dram indeed. I took a punt on it and was very pleased. Would buy again
