On Islay, even the sheep celebate the festive season. There’s nothing better on a dark wintery night than a large dram of cask strength Kilchoman. So this year they have decided that rather than reducing Machir Bay to the standard 46% abv bottling strength they have release a limited number of bottles at cask strength; 58.6% abv. That should keep out the cold!
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
