Originally released in France, Sanaig was given a wider release in 2016. Aged in a combination of oloroso-sherry and bourbon casks, this shows excellent balance between peat smoke and sweet citrus flavours.

    Nose - dried fruits followed by caramel and vanilla with smoke but not overpowering. Palate - citrus flavours smoke and all the dried fruit and flavours one would expect from Oloroso and American White Oak casks. Finish - a well balanced malt, mixed citrus and dried fruits with of course smoke. Possibly a little over priced.

    I find it does not have the complexity of a Bowmore. Here in Ontario, Canada, its more expensive than a 12 year Bowmore or JW black. Its has more alcool content and that is a matter of opinion if you want to be hit by that effect instead of the taste. Its also more expensive since its only a 700 ml bottle instead of 750. All in all I regret buying it.

    Smooth up front, with vanilla and toffee, then turns complex and smoky, with a definite sherry-tinged finish. One of my all-time favorites.

    Kilchoman pulls it out the bag again with Sanaig, an excellent whisky at a very reasonable price point - if I blind-tasted this I would swear it was an intensely rich, deep version of Bowmore. Taste profile leans quite towards the sherry side, making this a lip-smacking sherry monster. After an hour could still taste this.

    Exquisitely delicious. It immediately competes with Laphroaig Quarter Cask as my desert island choice.
