Named after an inlet on Islay’s rugged Atlantic coast, Sanaig is a vatting of both sherry and bourbon casks. The high proportion of Oloroso sherry influence adds a balance of dried fruits and spices to classic Kilchoman citrus sweetness and peat smoke character.
Nose: Fragrant heather, raisins, pear, orange peel, stoned fruits, mixed spices and rich peat smoke
Palate: Over ripe plums, red cherries and hints of citrus followed by rich barbeque peat smoke, toffee, oak and dark chocolate
Finish: Mouth-coating mixed fruit, caramel, cinnamon and clove with layers of brown sugar, spices, peat smoke and lasting sweetness.
