Kilchoman Machir Bay
70 / 46% abv
Named after the breath-taking sands of Machir bay, which is located just 2 kilometres from the Kilchoman distillery, this expression is one of kilchomans signature peated range. Matured in a mixture of both bourbon and sherry barrels, this whisky not only holds the classic flavours of Islay peat that you would expect but also has surprising hints of floral intensity giving the whisky a unique flavour.
Nose: Lemon zest and vanilla initially fill the nose but then mellow and make way to strong cents of peaches, pears and rich spice.
Palate: Filled with flavours of tropical fruit and sultanas that balance perfectly with a warm smoky sweetness that follow.
Finish: starts out fruit and sweet but quickly evolves into a long lasting peaty smoky flavour
