The distillery describe this edition "The Dark is a rich and powerful 17 year old expression of Highland Park. Matured in European oak sherry seasoned casks to deliver a distinctively deep flavour, it's packed with dried fruit, nuts and spices and overlaid with hints of smoky pear. THE DARK – a special release of only 28,000 bottles – we celebrate 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. 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 summer solstice and the low sun of winter solstice – the polar opposites of our island seasons – while the runic writing reflects the ancient carvings of our Viking ancestors, here on Orkney."
