THE DARK is a rich and powerful expression of Highland Park, matured in sherry seasoned European oak casks to deliver a distinctively deep flavour. This special release of 28,000 bottles shares the story of the noble Viking warriors. Presented in a beautifully embossed black glass bottle, the serpent dragon design takes its inspiration from the great Norse sagas and embraces both the high sun of the summer solstice and the low sun of the winter solstice. It is a celebration of autumn and winter on Orkney; a time to escape from the wild weather outside and gather together with friends and family, sharing long nights of conversation and laughter around the table, around the fire. A fantastic example of how blending Sherried richness with elegant smoky elements can work spectacularly. Presented at a natural cask strength of 52.9% abv, with no added colouring.
Nose: Pine and ginger, with layers of chocolate-chip cookie and fruitcake.
Palate: Raisins and roasted coffee beans, with light wisps of heathery smoke.
Finish: Mint chocolate ice cream, prunes, figs and almonds.
