Kilchoman - 'Sanaig' Single Malt Scotch Whiskey 750ML
From the Producers
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whiskey
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.
Nose: Sweet, peaty aroma complete with notes of apple cinnamon and caramel.
Palate: More peat smoke, toffee, butterscotch, raisins, and peach with dark chocolate raisins and a whisper of red berries with a hint of black pepper too.
Finish: The Finish is boldly marked not only by fruit and pie crust but also pepper and star anise.
