Kilchoman Islay Single Malt Sanaig

Founded in 2005, Kilchoman is Islay's only farm distillery, and the first new distillery on the island in 124 years. The Sanaig is aged in 70% first fill sherry butts and 30% ex-bourbon barrels. On the nose: fragrant heather, raisins, pear and orange peel with waves of stone fruit, mixed spices and rich peat smoke. On the palate: overripe plums, red cherries and hints of citrus give way to rich barbeque peat smoke, toffee, oak and dark chocolate. Caramel, cinnamon and clove on the finish, with layers of brown sugar, spices, peat smoke and a lingering sweetness.
