The Kinship Highland Park 21 Year Old Description
Our Hamish has had a sip and jotted down his thoughts.
Notes from Ardnahoe Master Distiller Jim McEwan:
"The graceful off dry bouquet is of ripe fruit with floral estery notes, almost Speyside like. I was expecting more smoke on the nose, however, I got the heather and the marine freshness with the Island sea breeze salient which is a Highland Park keynote. The peat will emerge more on the palate than on the aroma. It’s a classic bouquet and I always get the peach and apricot overture that HP delivers with style. Malted barley, heather, crème caramel with just a hint of Oloroso rise off the shoulders of the oaks, both American and Spanish.
On the palate the warmth of the peat fire embers is evident. Smouldering gently bringing a flush to the cheeks and a sparkle to the eyes. This is the stuff of whisky making genius, because whisky from anywhere doesn’t come better than this. The aftertaste is one of smoke and honey with just a teardrop of lemon juice that lingers on the palate slowly disappearing like a sunset on Kirkwall Bay. I love it!"Back to top
