    Probably the finest Bunna I had so far. A warm and tender nose, promising the gorgeous mouthfeel that's about to come and then, on the palate, a real explosion of taste. Honey, Valrhona, kumquat cests and and and. Long, warm and deep, every drop a pleasure with an aftertaste that lasts at least two minutes.
    For a long time I thought that the - really great - four Bunna's from the Celtic Heartlands series could not be topped, but then came the Kinship series. In 2017 led by the Bunna, also in 2018, but this year's edition outbids them all!
    Thanks and congrats to Jim McEwan for this selection!

    A very good whisky but not great or legendary. The cask dominates the nose slightly although lovely salinity. Theres a sour wine note from modern olorosso cask which it doesn’t need in our opinion. Just the ex bourbon would allow the distillate to have more a voice but it would be less sweeet and sweet sells. There are lovely maritime characters and the palate has good texture and delivery is very good. Is a little papery from the oak on the finish and it seems they tried to cover up that astringency by adding the sherry oaked. It finishes thin too, distillate wise. The alcohol carries but not the flavour proteins. This is tasting a newly opened bottle and as always it might improve with time and oxygen.
