Copy of Kilchoman Machir Bay
Kilchoman distillery was founded in 2005 and is the first distillery to be built and produce single malt whisky on Islay for over 120 years. In a return to the roots of distilling on the island, it is a farm distillery in the truest sense; with a large proportion of the barley used in production being both grown and malted at the distillery. .
The nose offers a surprisingly sweet-scented fruit character, coalescing rich, damp, freshly-hewed peat with mild suggestions of humid cigar smoke; ushering a palate which is lively with a faint, candied-apple sweet spiciness sweeping a rich, briny and intensely smoky character which fades to a dry, oily creaminess on the finish.
