New for 2016, the Kilchoman Sanaig is a more lightly sherried expresion than Loch Gorm, consisting of both sherry matured and sherry finished whiskies. Bottled at 46% it is one of the most eagerly anticipated new Islay whiskies of the year. We can't wait to try it!

Andrew's Tasting Note

Nose: creamy with leather, clean smoke, doughy notes and chewy malt; drying orange slices, honey dew, soft vanilla and honey dew melon; hints of dark fruits, Caramilk and medicinal peat.

Palate: big, creamy, medicinal and smoky with loads more chewy malt; some lavender perfume, big honey tones and soft leather; more Caramilk, dark fruits and spices develop with patience; oily and minty with more orange and melon.

Finish: big, coating, oily and fruity with creamy vanilla and medicinal peat smokes.

Comment: like many of its sister expressions this Kilchoman is both bold but elegant, brash but layered and it doesn't disappoint! 

From the Distillery: "Sanaig, a small rocky inlet North West of the distillery is the name given to this continuously available release. Sanaig has a predominantly sherry cask influence owing to the significant time spent in oloroso sherry Hogsheads. These aged oloroso casks contribute a drastically transformed depth of colour and character compared to the mostly Bourbon cask matured Machir Bay. “A beautiful marriage of bourbon and sherry maturation balanced with classic Islay peat smoke and light citrus sweetness” Anthony Wills, Founder. Sanaig was awarded Best Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Non Age Statement at the IWSC 2016."
