Kilchmaon Machir Bay, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
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. .
Nose: Citrus zests, crumbly vanilla biscuits and layers of elegant peat smoke.
Palate: A generous burst of tropical fruit and dried raisin opens the palate. Warming smoke continues to waft playfully.
Finish: Sherried fruits and sprinkle of cracked black pepper.
