Kilchoman Machir Bay 2016
Kilchoman // Scotland
Part of the brand's core range, Machir Bay is a single malt annually released by the "Islay farm distillery" known as Kilchoman. This 2016 edition is the 5th so far and like previous releases, first-fill bourbon and oloroso sherry casks were utilized in its maturation. After marrying whiskies aging around 6 years in first-fill bourbon, the vatting is finished in oloroso sherry casks before bottling at 46% ABV.
