Hunter Laing, The Kinship, Bowmore 30YO (700ml)
Hunter Laing, 2020 Kinship Series
No. 3, Bowmore 30YO
A beautiful suite of six ancient Islay gems, the Kinship Series is a yearly release from Independent Bottler, Hunter Laing & Co. celebrating the Feis Ile Festival as their new Ardnahoe Distillery comes on-line.
Highly sought after and in short supply, the series is available in its individual parts or as a whole.
No. 3 in the 2020 Kinship series is a 30YO Bowmore, aged in a refill Oloroso sherry cask carefully selected by Andrew Laing which yielded 256 bottles.
Expect full flavour, a rich but structured, mesmerisingly textured body.
Dark fruit notes with light peat reek on the nose, alongside nutmeg, walnuts, figs and dates.
Crispy bacon, sweet lemons, leather, prunes and tobacco on the palate alongside honeyed almonds, burnt orange zest and clove.
Top-class Oloroso sherry-matured Bowmore depth and elegance.
