The Highland Park 17 Year Old Scotch Whiskies share the story of the noble Viking warrior ancestors, of the contrasting island seasons and of the intense balance. Light and dark are concepts that exist in opposition, yet together create a perfect balance. One cannot exist without the other; as one appears, the other disappears; together they create something greater than themselves – in nature, a perfect, continuous cycle.
The Dark celebrates autumn and winter in 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 or 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 the summer solstice and the low sun of the winter solstice – the polar opposites of the island seasons – while the runic writing reflects the ancient carvings of Viking ancestors which can still be seen today in Orkney. The deep russet colour offers flavours of dried fruits, cinnamon, toasted almonds, cedar wood, fruitcake and light smoke.
