The first time I tasted Kilchoman Sanaig I felt rather “meh” about it and didn’t bother picking up a bottle. Then, at a tasting, I had some from a friend’s bottle that had been open for a while and I changed my tune. I went from “meh” to “pretty good” that night and decided to pick up a bottle and dig into this funky little malt a bit more.
