Highland Park Dark Origins Single Malt Whisky is a new expression that marks the early days of illicit distilling on Orkney. Magnus Eunson was a butcher and church official in his "day jobs", but by night he was a crafty whisky smuggler and distiller using all his cunning and guile to outwit the exciseman. To honour Magnus Eunson, Highland Park have created this whisky with a suitably dark character. Using first-fill Sherry casks, first-fill European oak and first-fill American oak, an intriguing whisky has been produced.
