Located on a rugged stretch of coasts on the north of Islay, Sanaigmore is a region battered by tidal surf and strong northern winds and is an appropriate namesake for this whisky. Sanaigmore is matured in a combination of both bourbon and sherry casks, taking most of its flavour influence from the latter, thus giving it the flavours of deep rich fruit cake, balancing delicately with the purity of Islay peated smoke, the truest spirit of Kilchoman.
Nose: fragrant scents of mixed spices, dried pitted fruits, and heather; tempered in the deep sense of smoky peat.
Palate: Citrus, with the slight tang of red cherries and the sweetness of over-ripened plum, yielding to peat-smoked barbeque, essence of oak, the richness and confection of toffee and slight bitterness of dark chocolate.
Finish: A spiced and sweet concoction of cinnamon and cloves with caramel; with tiers of brown sugar and peat smoke.
