Kilchoman Sanaig70 cl, 46%
A very interesting whisky from Kilchoman’s Small Batch series.
The series shows off the distillery’s smoky spirit in different sorts of cask maturation.
This dram has been aged in a combination of Bourbon (70%), Oloroso sherry (5%) and Fino sherry (25%) casks. Fino is a very dry style of sherry, not often used to mature whisky, which often imparts a somewhat savoury character to a spirit.
The single malt itself offers notes of apples, pineapples, bananas, mango, guava, salt, sea spray, maritime peat, wood ash, subtle dried fruit, buttered bread, toasted malt, and smoked meat.
Bottled at 49.2% ABV, this is a medium bodied, flavourful whisky.
