It may be one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland, but oh boy, do they ever deliver BIG flavour.
Sanaig was awarded Best Single Malt Scotch Whisky – Non Age Statement at the IWSC 2016
Recently added to our back bar, Kilchoman Sanaig has a predominantly sherry cask influence owing to the significant time spent in oloroso sherry Hogsheads. These aged oloroso casks contribute a drastically transformed depth of colour and character compared to the mostly Bourbon cask matured Machir Bay.
Master of Malt described it as “plenty of fruit and earthy peat coming through on this one, with a touch of dark chocolate-covered raisins.” and we’d have to agree.
This is a legit Scotch that people are only starting to discover. Take a minute, kick your feet up, and dram it up soon.
