Highland Park Dark Origins description
The Highland Park Dark Origins celebrates Magnus Eunson, the founder of Highland Park, and his journey to make one of the greatest spirits in the worldDark Origins uses double the amount of first fill sherry oak casks used in Highland Park 12 year old, allowing for a far richer taste than almost all other Highland Park expressions.
