- ABV 46%
Beginning production in December 2005, this miniscule operation (one of Scotland’s smallest) is the first distillery to be built on Islay for over 120 years. 'Machir Bay' is the first general release from this upstart and is a vatting of 3, 4 and 5 year old whiskies, matured in fresh bourbon barrels and finished in oloroso sherry butts for 8 weeks.
Anthony Wills, Managing Director of Kilchoman adds “Machir Bay is one of the most beautiful beaches on Islay, close to the distillery. This expression will give continuity of supply to our customers around the world. Each year we will add more mature malt to the vatting.”
The house style tends towards a sweet, fruity and smoky malt.
Tasting note: Pale straw colour with a water like hue. Powerful opening scents of lanolin like peat, brine and white pepper. Second pass brings out hints of ripe citrus peel. Several minutes later fruit and nut chocolate comes to the fore. Typically complex. The palate is drier than the nose suggests, showing excellent concentration and lively spices. Citrus peel and dried fruit compete with lanolin and brine. Terrific balance. Concludes fresh, tangy, mildly peppery with a subtle kippery aftertaste. Invigorating and impressive. Possibly a little more peat than previous Kilchoman releases? 46% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... A nose of sweet peat and vanilla, undercut by brine, kelp and black pepper. Filled ashtrays in time. A smooth mouth-feel, with lots of nicely-balanced citrus fruit, peat smoke and Germolene on the palate. The finish is relatively long and sweet, with building spice, chili and a final nuttiness. An Islay classic in the making. 46% Alc./Vol. - www.whisky-pages.comsize>
