Explore successively through this box 2x20cl the influence of bourbon barrels on the peat of Machir Bay and the pronounced aromatic impression of Oloroso sherry casks of Sanaig. An ideal format to discover or rediscover the two key expressions of Kilchoman! Style: peaty, smoky, elegant and fruity.
MACHIR BAY Iconic version of Kilchoman, Machir Bay, before being a whiskey, is the name of a picturesque beach just a few steps from the distillery on the island of Islay. This single malt is a blend of whiskeys aged 80% in first-fill bourbon casks and 20% in Oloroso sherry casks. Style: Smoky and elegant.
SANAIG The second permanent reference of the Kilchoman distillery farm, Sanaig has become, just like its cousin Machir Bay, a flagship product, which will delight the most curious. This whiskey illustrates the very controlled meeting of an aging achieved at 70% in Oloroso Sherry casks and at 30% in bourbon casks. From this marriage results an intense peat, sublimated by the roundness brought by the aging. Style: Peaty and fruity.
The first distillery built on the Isle of Islay for over a century, Kilchoman celebrated its third birthday in September 2009, with its new spirit finally reaching the age required for it to be legally called a single malt. Built using the model of a “farmhouse-distillery”, Kilchoman makes a point of distilling its new spirit from barley grown on its own land. Some 100 tonnes are harvested and malted at the distillery, providing 30% of their needs. The rest comes from the maltings at Port Ellen. Its first barrel of new make spirit was filled in 2005.
