The first release in a series from Highland Park launched in 2017, that celebrates the seasons on the Isle of Orkney, where Highland Park is made. The Dark is a 17 year old single malt expression which focuses on the autumn and winter seasons.
This particular whisky has been drawn from European oak Sherry casks. A fantastic example of how blending Sherried richness with elegant smoky elements can work spectacularly well.
Expect aromas of dried fruits, nuts and herbs that continue into the palate, where they are joined by distinctive notes of smoky peat.
The Dark has been bottled in a limited edition of 28,000.
