General description

Now this is a nice whisky for those who want to ease into peated whiskies. Unfortunately Dark Origins have been discontinued, but you might still be lucky to get your hands on a bottle.

Nose

The nose is very pleasant with a clear sherry aroma.

Palate

The palet is a mix of smokiness, milk chocolate and cherries.

Finish

The finish is spicy and sweet at the same time.

General description

The nose is the typical Highland Park peat nose, together with sweetness and sherry.
Palate is again sherry, but not too strong, aiding other flavors like wood, pepper, a hint of dark chocolate and baked fruits to greatness. I'm picking up a small note of citrus on the side.
Mostly sherry and baked fruits are lingering in the mouth afterwards.
This is what we call a great expression.

General description

It’s on the sweeter side for a highland park bottling. The sherry influence is obvious, and comes through in a sugary sweetness. That gets tempered by a touch of light peat, and quite a bit of spice. Underneath is dark chocolate, honey, and golden syrup. My only way to describe it is like the Orkney equivalent of chocolate chip pancakes with just a hint of peat smoke to keep it interesting.

General description

Riecht nach dunklen Beeren, Sherry, Malz und dunkler Schoko. Einem sanften Hinweis auf Wiesenhonig und Torfrauch. Eine frische Briese vom Meer ergänzt den edlen Tropfen. Highland Park typisch gut ausgewogen.
Am Gaumen überwältigen dich Sherry, dunkle Beeren, zart bitter Schokolade, Malz und diesen Hauch Wiesenhonig mit Rauchuntermalung.
Im Abgang so harmonisch mit einem Hauch Pfeffer.
