Kilchoman Sanaig Bottling Note

A handsome release from Islay's newest distillery, Kilchoman Sanaig is an enjoyably peaty single malt which has been vatted from both bourbon and Sherry casks. It's named after a small, rocky creek rather near the distillery on the west coast of the island. Look out for plenty of fruit and earthy peat coming through on this one, with a touch of dark chocolate-covered raisins.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Pineapple chunks and white grapes. Hints of fresh coffee carry the earthy, subtly spicy peat. Toffee cubes.

Palate: More light fruits (this time of the peach variety), with dark chocolate raisins and a whisper of red berries. Peat grows and grows, with a little black pepper too.

Finish: Quite long with coastal peat lasting.

Reviews for Kilchoman Sanaig
Incredible nose
My second Kilchoman after Machir Bay and the colours tell it's gonna be sherry.. The nose is one of the best I've ever experienced. Such a lovely floral and chocolate sent I kept smelling it really long. That plate isn't as great but sitll very nice. Love the story of kilchoman and gonna try more of their products. A very good sherry peat whisky.

Good, but not as good as others
It's good, it's very good.

But for the price point, Ardbeg Uigeadail is cheaper, cask strength, also sherry casked and a much more intense overall experience.

The review given below on 6th of April is talking pish. This is one of the best I've tasted, there's so many layers of flavour, no harshness and for my money a perfect balance of notes. I could drink a glass every night and not get bored. Love it

Over priced.
Pleasant enough but grossly over priced. Head down town Tesco and by what's on special offer, it will be just as good.

If you like Islay you must try this
Bought this for my friend, who is something of a connoisseur when it comes to Islay whisky. He really enjoyed this and I did too! In fact it is now his new favourite. Smokey, peaty and nicely rounded by the sherry sweetness. Better than any others I have tasted for his price level, so great value too.

Perfect whisky to unwind with.
Excellent smooth and sweet whisky with no harshness I could detect. Sherry notes to the fore for me which I found very pleasant.
Perhaps a little less complex than some but a nice dram all the same. A little too easy to drink if anything. I don't think this bottle will last very long.

Excellent go to nalt to unwind with. Smooth and sweet.
First taste of this particular whisky and I like it very much. I am not a whisky expert, far from it, but this is one of the best I have tried. Very smooth, sweet sherry notes and no harshness I can detect. Pleasant lingering peat but not overwhelming. Perhaps less complex than some I have tried but a very pleasant dram. As good as the bottle of 18yr old Bowmore which I enjoyed recently.
Definitely very much influenced by the sherry and therefore may not appeal to those who do not appreciate this aspect.
For those that appreciate a good sherry I suspect you will love this.

An exceptional Islay malt
An exceptional malt, very well balanced. Highly recommended.

A wonderful surprise in a cynical industry
This has peat but also depth and sweetness.
It takes a bit of breathing to marry such disparate flavours but it is worth the wait.
A sherried Islay? Wonders will never cease!
I don't know how old this is, but it certainly doesn't suffer from two common limitations of NAS drams: thinness and harshness.
Of course there are a few wonderful NAS bottles out there, but many of them opt for a high peat, high octane taste profile to cover their youth. I have not tasted one which has such body and ease of drinking.
It states "natural colour" on the bottle.
I sincerely hope this means "no added colouring" rather than " the added colour is natural."
This is excellent whisky which tastes better than many 12 or even 15 year old single malts.
I will definitely be exploring more.
