Tasting notes KILCHOMAN MACHIR BAY

Nose: at first, peaty notes get to the nose, followed by spices (white pepper and cinnamon). Vanilla and hints of red fruits are the last to show off.

Palate: yellow fruit (pear and apple), together with peat, vanilla and white pepper, alternates. There is also a litlle bit of liquorice, that complete the aromatic profile.

Finish: average persistence. Peaty and marine notes, vanilla and spices.

Even if this is the entry level from Kilchoman distillery, the maturation in burbon and sherry casks gives life to a very balanced whisky. The peat is not overwhelming but it’ present and gives character to this scotch. Perfect to start enjoying peaty malts, but not only.
