Highland Park unveils its Dark Origins
Highland Park has added a new expression called Dark Origins to its core range of single malt Scotch whiskies.
Dark Origins, a 46%abv non-chill filtered single malt, will start to appear on shelves in July and roll out internationally throughout autumn 2014.
It uses twice as many first fill sherry casks than in the classic Highland Park 12 year old resulting in a naturally darker, richer flavour with sherried spice, a chocolate twist and signature sweet smoke of the Orcadian whisky. Highland Park is one of the few distilleries not using distiller’s caramel and so Dark Origins takes its natural colour from the interaction between spirit and cask.
