Highland Park 17 year old The Dark
The first of Highland Park's dual release called "The Dark" shares the story of our ancestors, the noble Viking warriors, of our contrasting island seasons and of the intense balance of our whisky.
With 28,000 bottles made, this is the ying to Highland Park's "The light's" yang, matured in Sherry casks for 17 years. A fantastic example of how blending Sherried richness with elegant smoky elements can work spectacularly.
An intriguing mixture of cinnamon and ginger, with freshly baked cookies and Christmas cake invade your nostrils. From there, delicious, rich raisin and coffee beans flavours take over with a subtle hint of smokiness to finish.
