Tasting Notes

The Dark is a special release designed to represents the Autumn and Winter months when this most Northerly place sees very little sunlight. The wild weather and cold temperature make for a perfect occasion to sit, talk and enjoy an exceptional malt. This excellent 17 year old malt is aged in sherry seasoned European oak. We don't get to see a lot of heavy sherry expressions from the famous distillery in Kirkwall and when we get something that gets the full treatment, collectors and connoisseurs should take note. Big rich spices and dense fruit mingle perfectly with that ever present heathery smoky and gorgeous Island malt. The palate moves toward dried plum, cacao nibs, roasting espresso, wisps of smoldering peat and subtle notes of fresh mint, wet moss, dark fruit and roasted nuts. Probably the most exciting whisky to come out of Highland Park in some time.

    For starters, its not THAT dark; don't expect the intense coffee/flat cola color of some heavily sherried whiskeys. What struck me was how nicely balanced the peat and sweetness factors were. Lots lf dried apricots and peaches soaking in a touch of salty brine. Very smooth, touch of delicious spice on the tongue, and an awesome, long, and complex roasted coffee bean finish. Impressive bottling.
