Highland Park Dark Origins. Image courtesy Highland Park/Edrington.This Highland Park expression uses a higher percentage of ex-Sherry casks in its blend than the traditional Highland Park 12, which accounts for the darker color (and the name). It carries no age statement, but the nose is full of dark fruits, plums, prunes, raisins, and blackberry cobbler, along with hints of ginger and clove and a nice smokiness. The taste is thick and fruity with plums, prunes, figs, honey, and mild touches of clove and ginger. The finish is thick and fruity with lingering spices and hints of smoke. (August, 2014)
