Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman Sanaig

- Wonderfully rounded and heartwarming everyday drop! Has that something of the animalistic, metallic sound of the first Kilchomans, which is no longer dominant, but gives the little water a good character.
Torfaschige odors spread already when opening the bottle and pouring into the dram. As soon as the nose approaches the glass, the initial scent is enveloped by crystallized honey, citric elements and caramel. Masterfully composed: peaty, sweet, sour and a bit sharp (peppery).
Goldiciously oily, the potion flows into the throat and unfolds there its pleasant effect.
When swallowing, the main components (peat, honey, spices, but also soft pepper) separate a bit, but find balanced again and remain medium in length.
- Well done - a decent Islay Malt!
[Color] bright gold;
fruity, woody smoke aromas, sherry, spice, oak;
powerful sweet onset, citrus fruits, aromatic smoke, ashes, some sherry, oak, pepper, tingling, young, complex;
medium-long, oily finish; in the aftermath smoke and nice pepper;
Meaty and fruity
Peat and sherry combine to a BBQ smoke reminiscent flavour.
Dry, vegetal peat, and some of the sherry meatiness sticks around.
- Young, unpretentious, but unexpectedly dense for its low fortress, cohesive, spicy.
Open, smoke-peat with a tangible admixture of juicy fresh rubber, fire charcoal, burnt branches, in style close to Ardbeg.
Dense, sufficiently saturated for such a young Molta, sweet, with a soft peppery wave, cream, condensed milk, ash, activated charcoal.
Sweet-smoky, coals, ash, condensed milk.
- Very successful this sherry finish!
The nose is peaty, dry peat, mineral, dry fruits and exotic.
On the palate it is round, peat fades before the grapes and spices.
The finish is medium-long on smoke and fruit.
