Dark Origins is a sherry cask matured Single Malt Whisky released by Highland Park. This whisky combines a variety of Sherry Casks i.e. about 80% first fill sherry casks (60% of which is European oak and 20% American) and 20% refill sherry casks. The founder of Highland Park Magnus Eunson was reputed to be a smuggler who worked in the darkness of the night...hence the name Dark Origins alluding to the distillery's origins. With a dark mahogany color, this whisky combines some sherried spices, roasted hazelnuts, baked apples and warm dark chocolate.
