TASTING NOTES – HIGHLAND PARK DARK ORIGINS

Nose

On the nose, hints of malt, peat and marine notes are perceived. Then, nuances of iodine and a red fruit follow. An aroma of wood and spices is also perceptible. Light notes of caramel appear as well.

Palate

The palate is dominated by notes of peat, enriched by spices and leather. The marine notes are confirmed as well.

Finish

The finish is medium, with notes of peat and wood spices. There are also notes of cherries in alcohol and wood varnish present.

Overall, the Highland Park Dark Origins is an easy-to-drink Scotch, with a good balanced. The peat does not cover the rest of the flavor profile, although it plays a leading role. The ex-Sherry barrels create a greater amplitude in the number of aromas perceived, although their depth is not particularly pronounced.
