The 2014 release of Kilchoman Machir Bay is a vatting of five and six years old single malt, matured in bourbon barrels and oloroso sherry butts.
|Distillery: Soft cooked fruits, strong peaty aromas and citrus.
The WSD: The nose is grapefruit chunks in a wooden bowl strangely with pork sausages. A little time and the smoke begins to rise. Burning newspaper. And then its an inferno. (M)
|Distillery: Mixed fruits and vanilla and an intense sweetness.
The WSD: The taste is full on chewing smouldering peat, smoked duck and licking batteries. Wow. Bitter ashes. A wake up call (M)
|Distillery: Signature Kilchoman, with a long lingering finish.|
