Kilchoman Sanaig 20cl
Kilchoman Sanaig is a rather interesting release from Islay's newest distillery. The Sanaig expression is an enjoyable peaty single malt. It has been matured in ex-bourbon and Sherry casks. It's named after a small, rocky creek 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.
Nose: Pineapple pieces and ripped grapes. Touch of fresh coffee and subtle 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: lingering with coastal peat.
