Machir Bay 2013 Bottling Note

Produced at the artisan farm distillery Kilchoman, Machir Bay 2013 is a delicious vatting of five year old bourbon-matured whisky, and four year old bourbon-matured and Oloroso-finished malt. The 2012 edition was awarded a Gold Medal at the 2012 International Wine and Spirit Competition. We're predicting big things from this one.

Kilchoman Machir Bay 2013 Release Reviews


I am just starting with whiskies, have tasted some Laphroaigs like qc, 10yo etc, Ardbegs like Uigeadail, 10yo and Caol ila 12yo to name few. This is the first and only bottle I've bought so far and I have to say it's the best I've got into my mouth. So smooth and sweet with just enough smokiness. Very good for the price, I recommend if you still find this somewhere.

First try at Kilchoman

After big words of my friends after visiting the distillery, this one was on my list...and it does'nt disappoint.
Openening with the smell of and old Islay fisherman's wife's spice rack with open pepper-shakers comes to mind...but then the 10 year old sherry in the cabinet of that fishermans that has been influenced by the smoke of his vintage pipe takes the upperhand...lingering to sweets dish that was since ever on the table of the pipe-smoke filled living room.
The finish has a mouthfull of iron and a fruity desert.

I'm sold...time to sourche a few other bottlings.

The "vintage doll" review pretty much hits the nail on the head as far as this one goes, way better than the official "Tasting Note" above. While peaty, it's a bit livelier(?) than the traditional, southern Islay malts. But the liveliness is a bit of a guilty pleasure too, as there's some reminiscence of "Hot Damn" and other various coming-of-age liqueurs to be noted. Definitely worth a try, but probably not a staple. Certainly curious to see what else comes out of this distillery though.

Very interesting stuff!

Has quite a different personality from other Islay scotchs. Quite an interesting experience, I highly recommend the experience!

Thought I'd give this one a try after reading the reviews- so glad I did. Blown away buy this one -stands its ground with any of the big name Islay's I usually drink. Give it a go - trust me you won't be disappointed!

Running wind sprints between goal posts

while more mature whisky (like a Bunna Toiteach) is jogging laps around the field. Unmistakeably green, notably shallow in profile but who gives a rip? What it does well - the welterweight smoke and brine uppercut to the jaw - it performs with such enthusiasm, it stands on its own. Do experiment both neat and varying additions of water, as well as time standing before drinking and resting the dram. Again, not complex but we know that going in. A young stallion coming of age and eyeing the mares...enjoy the swagger.

Nostalgic note of....vintage doll?

Kilchoman's Machir Bay is the distillery's lovely and subtle core expression. The nose offers strong peat and yeasty biscuit notes, followed by an intense green apple sweetness that reminded me of those scented Strawberry Shortcake dolls of the 1980s. (Indeed, after conducting a bit of internet research, I discovered there was an apple-based character named Apple Dumplin', so we'll go with that.)

Sweet flavors dominate the palate, soft and substantial, like rich angel food cake with sugary icing. The finish is long and spicy-sweet with an afterburn of cinnamon red-hots.

Smokey and lovely, do yourself a favor and try it. It's one of the best for the money.
