Kilchoman Distillery Machir Bay Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky NV

Ratings on Delectable

Aaron Tan Delectable Pro

I'd still prefer wine after a dry run, but this whiskey sure did hit a spot. The balance and complexity of the Machir Bay is just undeniable, evident from the score achieved here. Fresh, zesty fruits are starkly juxtoposed with pastry-like nutty, creamy vanillin notes. The peat straddles the line between salinity and camp fire smoke. A rockstar finish that just lingers with sweet, malty flavour and a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper. Needs a little air to sort out some initial aggression, but once that settles, I felt nothing was out of place. Best entry-level Islay for me! 2019 bottling here.

Truly fantastic. Delicate yet powerful smoke, with tropical fruit and honey.

Nose like Balkan sobrani tobacco. Light color and smooth delivery. A great Islay scotch for new drinkers. Lightly peated.
