Tasting Notes for Kilchoman Machir Bay

Nose: Lemon zest, vanilla and distinct coastal influence give way to floral intensity, juicy peaches, pears, and wafts of rich spices.

Palate: Bursts of tropical fruit and dried sultanas, warming smoke and waves of honey, malt, butterscotch and rich sweetness.

Finish: Sherry-soaked fruit, cracked black pepper and sea salt. Long-lasting with layers of citrus sweetness and maritime peat smoke.

  • Kilchoman‘s Machir Bay is an award-winning Single Malt that is an excellent representation of Scotland’s infamous Islay region. This signature peated single malt is comprised of a marriage of Kilchoman distillates matured in both bourbon and sherry casks. Named after Islay’s most spectacular beach, the high proportion of bourbon barrels create a distinct balance of classic Islay character and fresh floral complexity.

    A family run business, established by Anthony and Kathy Wills in 2005, Kilchoman was the first distillery to be built on Islay in over 124 years, and when it was established, it was Scotland’s smallest. Located at Rockside Farm in the west of the island, Kilchoman is Islay’s only farm distillery, producing Scotland’s only Single Farm Single Malt. By farm distillery and Single Farm Single Malt, we mean that everything from the grown barley, malting, distillation, maturation and bottling is done at the distillery.

    Farm distilleries were by their very nature always self-sufficient and, while that is difficult these days with global demand for whisky on the rise, Kilchoman continues to try to stay true to that original model. Despite soaring demand for their critically acclaimed whiskies, 25% of its barley requirements come still come from the fields surrounding the distillery in Islay. It has two small malting floors and kilns which produce a medium-peated malt – the heavily peated with which it is mixed comes from Port Ellen. Inside the distillery, fermentation is long, helping to create fruitiness to balance the shoreline/shellfish-like phenolics, while an enlightened (and pricey) wood policy has seen a high percentage of first-fill ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks being used. The result is that Kilchoman has hit the start of its mature period at a remarkably young age.
