Kilchoman Machir Bay Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Aromas of citrus zest, and vanilla cake, with a nice peat smoke . The palate shows jalapenos and warming peat balancing honey, light tropical fruits and cinnamon. D&M Tasting Notes, April 2019.

95 Extraordinary, Ultimate Recommendation, Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2020

Machir Bay, our signature peated single malt, is a vatting of Kilchoman matured in both bourbon and sherry casks. Named after Islay’s most spectacular beach, the high proportion of bourbon barrels create a distinct balance of classic Islay character and fresh floral complexity.

The Vintage releases are created from specially selected fresh and refill Bourbon casks. The bourbon casks selected for the Vintage releases are some of the oldest we have maturing. The 2006 Vintage was the first to be launched as a five year old, since then we have released a 2007 Vintage (six years old), a seven year old 2008 Vintage will be released in Autumn 2015. Being matured exclusively in bourbon barrels gives these releases powerful peat smoked fruit on the nose and mouth-filling butterscotch and clove sweetness on the palette. Distillery Notes 

From a overarching philosophy, Kilchoman emerged out of the same school of thought as the American ‘Grain to Glass’ movement. They too were interested in starting with raw ingredients and working through to a finished product. Anthony Wills began in the whisky industry running his own independent bottling company for eight years, and saw the resurgence of Single Malts in the marketplace. He and his family decided to bring whisky back to its roots with farm distilling. ‘From Barley to bottling,’ is the slogan that the Kilchoman Distillery chose to represent their business philosophy. This reason to be included being located on the farm that grew the grain that made the whisky. It helped, to be sure, that Anthony’s wife’s family has owned land on Islay for over 60 years. With the combination of place, access to great barley, water from the hills of Islay, peat, and four sons to do the grunt work; Kilchoman was established within the bounds of Rockside Farm in 2005 This was a decided gamble as Kilchoman was the first new distillery started on Islay in 97 years.
