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

Tasting Notes

  • 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.

  • Producer's Notes

    • 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.

    I was worried this maybe shouldn't have been my first Highland Park whiskey (my local shop discontinued HP, can you believe that?) but it was all I could get when I decided to try HP. Amazingly good and complex. A wonderful experience!

    An amazing complex nose and taste that brings the smoky highland park into a very distinct and creative sherry bomb finish

    Highland Park have perfected the art of 'a hint of smoke'. An exquisite dram!

    There are times when one is surprised and shocked that perfection has somehow been improved. This is one of them.

    My other favorites are Shieldag 18yr, Grangestone 18yr and Mccallum 18yr...all smooth and Shieldag my more of a go to BUT this one is special moments and very savory with a hint of smoke...I’m not a Smokey/Peety fan but a hint of it like this one is perfect.
