REVIEW: Kilchoman Sanaig
.
Sanaig is the newest addition to the core lineup from Kilchoman, Islay's Farm Distillery. Similar to the introductory Machir Bay, the whisky is made from a vatting of both ex-bourbon and oloroso sherry casks. The difference with Sanaig, however, is that it contains a much higher proportion of sherry influence. This makes for what we can expect to be a richer, sweeter spirit with much more spice.
.
The name "Sanaig" comes from a rocky inlet near the distillery, toward the west coast of Islay. This follows a common theme within the name selection process at Kilchoman. Several expressions have now been named after nearby bodies of water or other natural landmarks, all with pride for the island of Islay. Sanaig is the newest.
.
With this whisky we venture into a unique category of single malts that I like to call "Sweet Peat". It is the beautiful style of combining heavily peated malt with some sort of wine cask influence (typically sherry, port, madeira, etc). For me, this makes for some of the most memorable whisky experiences to be had, offering an explosion of flavor in multiple directions. Examples of other distillery bottlings include the Laphroaig PX Cask, Octomore 7.2, and a personal favorite of mine, the Kilchoman Port Cask Matured.
.
Like Machir Bay, Sanaig is non-chillfiltered, naturally colored and bottled at 46% ABV. In the glass, the whisky has a deep copper hue to it. Generally speaking, the greater the proportion or the more time spent in sherry casks, the darker the color. The color of this whisky is indicative of a spirit matured in both sherry and ex-bourbon casks. (Continued below...) @kilchoman05 #kilchoman

Oldmate @worldincrisis introducing me to my new favourite place this eve. @theelysianwhiskybar in Melbourne. Chilled atmosphere, incredible selection and super-knowledgable Oldmates dishing out the delicious drams. We knocked over some lively Kilchoman gear and finished with a Christmas pudding of a PX matured Benriach 👌🏼🥃. #oldmate #dram_good_times #dramstraight #singlemalt #kilchoman #benriach
