A new release of non chill filtered and natural colour - the Kilchoman Sanaig (Sanaig - a small rocky inlet located north of the distillery).
Sanaig has a predominantly Oloroso Sherry Cask influence compared to the Machir Bay which is mostly Bourbon cask matured.
Kilchoman have added a Cask Influence bar to the front of both Sanaig and Machir Bay gift cartons to outline this.
Colour - Beech wood.
Nose - Soft cooked fruits with caramel and vanilla.
Palate - Toffee, peat smoke and citrus with lingering sweetness.
Finish - A lovely balance of peat smoke, fruit and sweetness.
'A beautiful marriage of bourbon and sherry maturation balanced with classic Islay peat smoke and light citrus sweetness'
- John MacLellan, Distillery Manager
