Kilchoman Sanaig Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 46% Age: No Age Statement Country: Scotland
Sanaig is the name of a small rocky inlet just north of the Kilchoman distillery. It’s very fitting to name this expression Sanaig as the inlet is an excellent place to explore and develop your love of Islay. Salty sea air, seaweed, dancing fields of barley. The fine sands and rich luscious colour of sunsets blended with the howling winds. It’s simply a stunning experiencing, nature at its finest.
The whisky is certainly one not to miss out on and once you’ve purchased a bottle you’ll wish you had purchased two. I always say this when it comes to a limited edition Kilchoman expression and this bottling delivers on all levels.
Maturing the whisky in about 25% bourbon barrels and 75% sherry barrels. Malting the barley so it has just the right amount of smoke. The distillation is light and fresh as always. It’s non chill-filtered and is natural in colour. Bottled at 46% abv and recommended by distillery founder Anthony Wills. I’ll just leave this here.
Our Tasting Notes
Nose: Fresh, a little heavier than other expression from this distillery. Stewed fruits, lashings of caramel. The vanilla has plenty of say, showing a longer maturation and quality bourbon barrels.
Taste: The sweetness is well balanced and combines perfectly with the peat smoke. There’s still citrus there, so don’t worry. A little vanilla and hints of raisin and sultana.
Finish: OMG! The peat smoke, the sweetness and the fruity after tones just say, perfect!
