Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Clean and fruity, with wood smoke, barley and lemon oil followed by vanilla and toffee.

    Palate: Alive with zesty citrus, aromatic peat, vanilla fudge, apple, pear and black pepper.

    Finish: Rich wood smoke balanced by clean citrus notes.

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Enticing aromas of wood smoke, barley and lemon oil. Clean and fruity, with richness in the form of vanilla custard and toffee.

    Palate: Whistle-clean, this is alive with zesty citrus fruit and aromatic peat with the balancing sweetness of vanilla fudge along with notes of apple and pear and a sprinkling of black pepper.

    Finish: The rich wood smoke is well balanced by the clean citrus notes.

    Comment: Lip smacking and refreshing, this is a delicious Islay single malt that is not only clean and fruity, but has the classic Islay peat character. A great introduction to Islay whisky.

    Very good. Layered. Starting with a striking smoke which is reducing as the grain spirit takes more space on the palate. It shows little oak though and is a pretty nervous dram. Slight more time in the wood would perhaps bring another star to it.

    A lovely dram. The smoke hits before smooth sweet flavours kick in along with a dash of spice. The finish is long and smokey and very pleasant. I hope to come back to this again

    As a massive fan of Islay malts, I had never tried anything from Kilchoman before. Machir Bay was my first introduction and I have to say it stands out as a great balance of many of my personal favourite characteristics of a peated whisky. Non chill filtered and natural colouring help assert an authenticity to the brand too.

    Simply a beautiful introduction to Islays wonderful malts, this is to my mind and taste one of Islays best, very clean slightly zesty but with a beautifully balanced peaty note indicative of all good islay malts. All in all a wonderful whisky.
