Kilchoman "Sanaig" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1251897 Whisky Advocate

 A new, and welcome, permanent member of the core Kilchoman range, this comes from a mix of sherry finished and sherry matured whisky. The nose kicks off with a lovely cigar ash note—a cigar club toward the end of the evening—and while there are some dried fruits from the sherry, Kilchoman’s gentle, light character gives energy and lemony lift—shellfish, grass, and herbs. Lovely balance. Rounded, softly fruity, and highly approachable. (DB, Summer 2016)

K&L Notes

The newest full-time release from Kilchoman distillery, located on Scotland's island of Islay, is called "Sanaig" and takes the standard bourbon aged portion of the Machir Bay and finishes the whole thing in sherry. The traditional bourbon cask maturation is complemented with aging in Oloroso sherry butts, adding both richness and texture to the whisky. The result is a chewier, denser, sweeter, and more decadent experience, but one still full of all the flavors that make Kilchoman what it is: smoke, peat, salt and earth.

I am so glad I finally got to try a couple different expressions from the newest distillery on Islay, and I am so impressed with this whisky. A lovely whiff of smoke on the nose lets you know you are getting into an Islay; however, the sherry casking lends it a smooth and rich body without being brooding. Slightly nutty and fruity notes play against the smoke and lead to a long finish with low heat. This whisky does not need an age statement at all, it stands up and delivers incredibly well for a newer, younger blend.
