Kilchmaon 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.
