Kilchoman Machir Bay 2012
Machir Bay 2013 is a vatting of 4 and 5 year old ex-bourbon casks, with the 4 year casks being finished in Oloroso sherry butts for 4 weeks prior to bottling. 46% ABV.
The Machir Bay range is Kilchoman's core expression, first launched in 2012 when it won the prestigious IWSC 2012 Gold Medal – Best in Class. Bottled once a year, each release contains more mature whisky each year allowing Kilchoman fans to follow the development of the unique Kilchoman malt as it matures. The 2013 Machir Bay displays further evolution of the 2012 release, showing more maturation flavors from the excellent cask regime and is softer and more rounded with lovely creamy mouth- filling flavors." -John MacLellan, Kilchoman Distillery Manager
