Kilchoman Sanaig Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Kilchoman Sanaig Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

A superb expression from Islay's Farm Distillery. This has been aged in a combination of ex-Bourbon and former Sherry casks. The whisky can be seen as the reverse of Kilchoman's flagship Machir Bay bottling – which is matured in mostly Bourbon cask with a touch of Sherry. Sanaig has been aged in 70% Sherry casks and 30% Bourbon barrels, ensuring a profile of sweet oak and smoked fruits.

Tasting notes


Pineapple and bright white grapes are on the start. Classic briny smoke follows with sticky dates, white pepper, vanilla and that sweet vanilla smoke character. After some time in the glass, jammy sherry flavours appear. A perfect summary of Islay


Delicate on the palate. Light stone fruits with berry character a citrus fruit zest. All balanced out by the sherry character which comes out as toffee throughout the whisky. Both sweetness and smoke build gradually through the mouth.


Perfect length, perfect finish. I’d drink this for the finish alone. Shortbread biscuits, caramel and a salty coastal peat. Absolutely balanced and leaves you wanting more.

A well balanced malt

Nose - dried fruits followed by caramel and vanilla with smoke but not overpowering. Palate - citrus flavours smoke and all the dried fruit and flavours one would expect from Oloroso and American White Oak casks. Finish - a well balanced malt, mixed citrus and dried fruits with of course smoke. Possibly a little over priced.

One of my all-time favorites

Smooth up front, with vanilla and toffee, then turns complex and smoky, with a definite sherry-tinged finish.

An excellent whisky

Kilchoman pulls it out the bag again with Sanaig, an excellent whisky at a very reasonable price point - if I blind-tasted this I would swear it was an intensely rich, deep version of Bowmore. Taste profile leans quite towards the sherry side, making this a lip-smacking sherry monster. After an hour could still taste this.
