Review #1004 | Scotch Review #338 – Kilchoman Sanaig

The Schtick: This is a Kilchoman release that is matured in an 80/20 ratio of Oloroso wine casks and ex-Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels. It is bottled at 46% abv without filtering or coloring and is named after one of the ricky inlets found north of Kilchomans distillery.

Distiller: Kilchoman

Bottler: Kilchoman

ABV: 46% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Buttered popcorn, sweet sherry and stewed fruits. Honey and cream, lightly ashy.

Taste: Ash, soap stone and stewed fruits. Campfire, burning wood. Medium mouth feel with light heat.

Finish: Medium length, ashy and fruity. Minerality is strong here.

Overall: While the sherry was noticeable in the palate, I would have liked some more. Overall, I like this a bit more than Machir and thought this was well done.

Thanks for reading!
