Kilchoman Machir Bay 2012 Edition

Country: Scotland

Region: Islay

ABV: 46%

Score: 88 Points

Kilchoman Machir BayThe nose has a good peatiness with brine and smoked salmon notes, and a touch of pear adds a fruity balance. The taste has a good balance of peat and sweet, with brown sugar, vanilla, pear, and coconut balancing the peatiness. The finish is long, smoky, and vibrant with coconut, vanilla, and pear notes. Consistent and good.
