Machir bay is Kilchoman distillery's signature peated whisky. Named after the beautifully spectacular beach located just two kilometres from the distillery and matured in a selection of both bourbon and sherry barrels, this whisky has a slightly floral flavour that adds to the already classic Islay peat that you expect from Kilchoman distillery.
Hints of lemon zest and vanilla are on the forefront of the nose but eventually mellow to allow a burst of floral intensity, juicy pears and peaches to take control. The palate is rich with dried sultanas, warm smoke with a honey-like sweetness. The finish demonstrates strong notes of cracked pepper, sea salt and coatings of citrus that eventually fade and give way to a long lasting flavour of peat smoke.
