- Peter Wills, one of the sons of the distillery founder, was in Cologne for a Kilchoman tasting - while ghosts and ghosts were celebrating Halloween outside, we were able to devote eight different bottlings to the distillery under the guidance of Wills.
The three-year Spring 2011 release was the last bottling of this kind, it was replaced by now part of the core range belonging Machir Bay.
A juxtaposition of the Spring 2011 release and the 2018 Machir Bay showed a distinct family resemblance, noting that the current Machir Bay notes that it is one of the heart of the distillery - here, over time, a successful mix of Bourbon and Sherry casks found.
- Below Kilchoman Autumn and Winter in my opinion. A product however more than correct, for 3 years of age.
Peat, medicinal plants and a little lime.
Cough syrup (plants and sugar), smoke. It's fat at the first attack but it falls quickly. The finish is dry and ashen.
Syrup for cough followed by a sensation of dryness of the palate.
- Taken from bottle label, Dr. James Swan - Whisky Consultant
Strong peaty aromas with a soft complex blend of mixed fruits.
Hints of butterscotch and rich tropical fruits with an intense sweetness.
A truly classic Islay malt, peaty, fresh and clean
- Smoky and spicy aroma, toffee, vanilla, cloves, cinnamon, orange zest, Vanilla sweet and smoky taste, pepper, ginger, mint, ripe orange, raisins and malt. Long, smoky and spicy end.
