Hunter Laing, The Kinship, Highland Park 30YO (700ml)
Hunter Laing, 2020 Kinship Series
No. 1, Highland Park 30YO
A beautiful suite of six ancient whisky 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. 1 in the 2020 Kinship series is a 30YO Highland Park, aged in a refill hogshead carefully selected by Scott Laing which yielded 439 bottles.
Expect a delicate and caressing body with depth of flavour typical of this distillery.
Very heathery on the nose with earthy, mossy notes, malt biscuits in an old cupboard, candied lemon zest on a windy shore, faint hints of peat phenol.
Continues on BBQ surf and turf and malty notes with highland heather honey.
An intensity of flavours along with the complexity for which the distillery is famous.
