    Taken from bottle label, Dr. James Swan - Whisky Consultant
    • Nose
      Strong peaty aromas with a soft complex blend of mixed fruits.
    • Taste
      Hints of vanilla and rich tropical fruits with an intense sweetness.
    • Finish
      A classic Islay malt - fresh, peaty, with a long lingering finish.

    this mix of his predecessors has lost a bit of liveliness and clarity for me and thus a point of valuation ... but still a great drop!
    • Nose
      ashen peat, but the barley malt is not lost; Kelp, which summons the sea
    • Taste
      a peat which is mashed with dried fruit
    • Finish
      the ash remains, very slight metallicity, but also more fruit, light vanilla background, pepper, chocolate, but not all that long

    Distillers Tasting Notes

    Peated to 50ppm, aromas of peat and vanilla biscuit are quickly followed by black pepper, kelp and brine. This whisky drinks beyond its years and offers a balanced but rich mouth feel that features citrus fruit and peat. Machir Bay ends with the quintessential medicinal Islay finish which is nicely augmented by honeyed nuts and sweet spices.
