Customer Rating
The third release of Kilchoman's ongoing Machir Bay whisky, bottled in early 2014. It's a vatting of five- and six-year-old whisky matured in first-fill bourbon casks, married and then finished in oloroso sherry butts for four weeks before bottling.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    Nose: Sweet, vanilla intermingles with lemongrass and a hint of peat.

    Palate: Rich and creamy, with the initial sweet vanilla turning into dark chocolate, spicy clove and peat smoke.

    Finish: Medium-long, with dark chocolate, clove and peat smoke.

    Comment: This displays the best of both worlds: creamy, sweet vanilla from the bourbon barrels and dark chocolate and clove from the oloroso casks. These flavours are then beautifully integrated with the peat smoke – an exceptional whisky for the price.

    Truly amazing. I liken this somewhat to sitting at the seafront, downwind of a peat fire whilst sipping freshly made, slightly sweetened tarmacadam through a cinnamon stick and just every now and then you get a little salty sea-spray hitting you lip.

    Wow, for it''s age this is simply amazing. I love Islay malts, and this is up their with the best. Lovely peaty, smokey finish. I bought this at Marks & Spencers on a whim to add to my collection, but I shall be getting another bottle for sure.

    I've not had Kilchoman for about three years, but I picked this up and it blew me away. Fantastic whisky and not too expensive when compared to other Islay malts!

    Delicious and leafy. Buttery smoothness. It may be young, but it is fantastic.
