Kilchoman Machir Bay
Machir Bay, our signature peated single malt, is a vatting of Kilchoman matured in both bourbon and sherry casks. Named after Islay’s most spectacular beach, the high proportion of bourbon barrels create a distinct balance of classic Islay character and fresh floral complexity.
Almost two kilometres of beautiful sandy beach welcome you onto Machir Bay. With a combination of rough turbulent seas and stunningly beautiful sunsets, the Machir Bay release embodies the bay after which it is named.
This is perfectly balanced, with notes of dried fruit, baked nuts and spice supplied by the Oloroso casks, and sweeter, vanilla heavy flavours of bright oak. These are supplemented by the classic Kilchoman ashy, warm peat, sea spray and citrus flavours.
