Named after the rugged stretch of coats that lays north of the distillery, Sanaigmore is a coastal point located on the north of Islay that is often battered with the high winds and crushing waves of the Atlantic. The whisky itself is matured in both sherry casks and bourbon cask but takes most of its influence from the sherry cask that it ages in. This gives the whisky a deep rich fruit cake flavour that balances incredibly with the pure Islay peated smoke of the Kilchoman spirit.
The nose is fragrant with hints of heather, raisins and mixed spices with and overhanging scent of peat smoke. The Palate is rich with over ripe fruit and berries that work along side flavours of dark chocolate and toffee to create a balanced malt. The finish is soft and sweet to start with but quickly develops into a peaty smoke that dances with the sweet flavours of the malt.
