Review #308. Highland Park Dark Origins

​Review #308 – Highland Park Dark Origins

Whiskey Network Review #308 | /r/Scotch Review #127 – Highland Park Dark Origins 93.6 pf | 46.8% ABV

Maturation: ex-Sherry blended ex-Bourbon

Age: NAS

Source: /r/scotchswap sample

Nose: RIch sherry, honey, molasses, toffee, figs, raspberry jam, strawberries

Taste:​ Thin mouthfeel but sweet and definitely sherried. Toffee, vanilla, strawberry and raspberry jam. NO sulfur. Peat sneaks in and grows over time. Nice mild ashy peat

Finish: More peaty but still sort of sweet. Peat wins in the end. Mild heat. ​

Overall: Great dram and very pronounced sherry and then peat. I like this quite a bit. There’s a clear transition while you’re drinking it, and while sometimes that is bad, in this case, it is very nice. This is on sale near me for $65 and I think that it is a phenomenal offering for that price. I’m giving this a Rank 7.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 7
