Dark Origins is inspired by the cunning spirit and courageous personality of Highland Park’s infamous founder, Magnus Eunson. The latest addition to the core expressions is matured in a combination of 80% first fill ex-sherry casks (of which 60% is European and 20% American oak) and 20% refill sherry, resulting in darker and richer flavours. Bottled at 46.8%.
Sherried spice and ripe bananas along with toasted hazelnuts and baked apple.
Well-balanced, dry peat at first mellowing out to maraschino cherries and dark chocolate.
Lingering sweet smoke.
