The Machir Bay range is their core expression, first launched in 2012 when it won the prestigious IWSC 2012 Gold Award - Best in Class.
Machir Bay is a picturesque sandy beach overlooked by the Kilchoman Church just half a mile from the distillery. Unlike most Kilchoman releases Machir Bay is matured in both Bourbon barrels and Sherry casks affording it a beautiful balance of rich tropical fruit, peat smoke, light vanilla and intense sweetness.
The distillery writes "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."
