Kilchoman Distillery on Islay is one of the islands newest distilleries. The whisky is aged in a combination of ex Bourbon and Olorosso sherry barrels it delivers elegance and tropical fruits, smooth vanilla balanced with black pepper and layers of peat smoke.
Nic our buyer says;
'A personal favourite. Kilchoman is still a "baby" distillery compared to all the malts you've heard about. They started making whisky in 2005 on Islay, a place known for making peaty (smokey) single malts. They produce so little that their bottlings are not cheap, but the Machir Bay is their flagship bottling and smashes it out of the park. It's crisp and dense with bags of flavour, not just smoke. The peat smoke is not like a burning stack of hay, it's more deep and integrated into the liquid. The finish is insanely long. One of my favourite Islay malts and worth every penny.'
