Kilchoman Machir Bay 70cl 46°
Kilchoman Machir Bay is the first standard and steady reference of the Kilchoman range. It is a combination of 3, 4 and 5 Year-old whiskies. Released in 2012, this Single Malt picked the "Best in Class" Gold Medal at the prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition.
Aged in first fill Bourbon barrels and finished for another 8 weeks in Oloroso Sherry casks, this un-chillfiltered version has become a key product of the range! Kilchoman crafted here an extremely pleasant young whisky and achieved a perfect combination of tropical fruits, smoky peat and sweet vanilla. This Single Malt is a small batch of quite peaty whisky.
Bottled once a year, each new version contains more mature casks, and features an interesting evolution of Kilchoman's malt.

First distillery built on Islay, 125 years ago, Kilchoman has been built as a “farm-distillery” and grows its own barley.
About 100 tons are harvested and malted at the distillery, 30% of the distillery’s needs. The rest is supplied by the Port Ellen malt-house. It is also part of the 6 last distilleries operating with traditional malting processes. In 2009, Kilchoman crafted its first recognized Single Malt. Kilchoman is one of the smallest distilleries of Scotland with an annual production of about 100.000 liters.
