An iconic version of Kilchoman, Machir Bay, before it was a whisky, was the name of a picturesque beach just a stone’s throw from the distillery on the Isle of Islay. This single malt is a blend of whiskies aged 90% in first-fill ex-bourbon casks and 10% in Oloroso sherry casks.

Style: Smoky and elegant. Nose: Soft and harmonious. Cooked fruit. Peaty aroma. Palate: Ample. Notes of fruit and vanilla. Finish: Long and persistent, with notes typical of Islay whiskies.
Well-fruited nose of apple, pear, stewed grapes and candied cherry. The almond is also present, but caramelized. The profile is fine and the woodiness delicate. The occasional whiff of alcohol is still noticeable.
The fruitiness on the nose is more intense than on the palate. The apples and pears are rather macerated in brandy, but they give way to the woodiness, which brings a distinct bitterness to the finish. At times, almonds creep into the tasting, accompanied by a touch of sweetness as on the nose.
Long, accomplished. Finely chocolaty, it is also rancid (cherry brandy, apricot liqueur). It evokes the harvesters’ baskets filled with golden bunches of the folle blanche grape variety. Retro olfaction oscillates between prune, vanilla and dark chocolate. The empty glass is roasted (tobacco, coffee).
