AVAILABILITY: 5 in stock

NOSE
You are first hit with zested lemon and spicy vanilla.  A strong coastal influence eventually paves the way into intense floral notes, stone and orchard fruit alongside spice.

PALATE
The palate pops with tropical and dried fruit, and features a warming smokiness with honey, malt, butterscotch and rich sweetness coming in waves.

FINISH
Sherry-soaked fruit, black pepper and sea salt. There is a lengthy finish with layers of sweet citrus and peat smoke.

Machir Bay, is the signature whisky from Kilchoman a relatively new distillery founded in 2005.  This is a peated single malt vatting of Kilchoman which has been allowed to mature in barrels that previously contained Bourbon and Sherry.  The use of Bourbon casks provides a clear Islay characteristic some might call Classic of the island.  This is backed up by a fresh floral complexity.  Machir Bay is a beautiful and popular beach and lends its name to this whisky.
