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.

Kilchoman Sanaig Reviews

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.

A great rich sweet smoky dram.

This whisky has got me back into Isay whiskies, so smooth and sweet and a great long aftertaste.

Going Keep an eye on these ones once the age statements come out what a great whisky

Well my first try of Kilchoman whisky what a delight, bourbon and sherry cask. that lovely Islay rich smoke with vanilla and citrus sweetness and toffee with a sweet peat smoke lasting and adding a bit of spice at the end. Great dram

Young and nuanced peat

A young and full crowd, full of nuances ranging from sweet to salty. This Islay takes you for a ride. A great experience.

Deep and full of flavour

This was upsold to me by my local whisky merchant based on my love of Caol Ila and I decided to take a chance on it. Deliciously sweet peat straight off, tiny bit of spice and really nice long finish. And what a colour! Did not expect such a good taste from such a young spirit.
I've not had a bad Kilchoman yet and will be keeping a close eye on them.

Impressed.

Just received my bottle from Master of Malt , what can I say , for a no age statement the colour is remarkable , I guess the sherry cask maturation Is quite long and the bourbon cask pretty short but taste wise it's very good ,dark fruits ,slight citrus ,chocolate ,smoke, decent finish , great stuff.

The best Kilchoman

This is a fantastic whiskey, complex, solid, sherry cask background. layers of peat and harmonious smuchinous. Get this thing its one of their cheapest and the best of their good selection and I've got most of them and none are bad.

Quality!

You can really taste the elements of this fantastic whisky. A full, rich, spicy, peaty mouthful. It’s assertive and demands your attention. It’s getting better and better the further down the bottle I’m drinking. The quality of the ingredients and care put into making this spirit shine through. Excellent.

Pleasant enough but in a competitive sector of the market

Peaty notes take time to emerge, but earthy in nature.
Initial hot is from the Olorosso sherry cask with the American White Oak hidden for a while, but vanilla starts to emerge. The colour betrays the dominant assertive nature of the Quercus Robur cask, with the high porosity initially overwhelming all else. Usual sultanas raisins dried apricots, apples, pineapple, banana, dried orange and lemon peel. Currants and figs also. American Oak difficult to identify sometimes.
Can't say this is well balanced but it is pleasant and very sweet. Salty taste initially accompanied by spices. Medium to full bodied mouthfeel. Certainly mouth coating.
Finish is very nice, sweet yet peaty and earthy.
