Cask Strength Cask notes: "On Islay, even the sheep celebrate the festive season. There’s nothing better on a dark wintery night than a large dram of cask strength Kilchoman. So this year we’ve decided that rather than reducing Machir Bay to our standard 46% abv bottling strength we’ll release a limited number of bottles at cask strength; 58.6% abv. That should keep out the cold!
Nose: Lemon zest, vanilla and distinct coastal influence give way to floral intensity, juicy peaches, pears, and wafts of rich spices
Palate: : Bursts of tropical fruit and dried sultanas, warming smoke and waves of honey, malt, butterscotch and rich sweetness.
Finish: Sherry-soaked fruit, cracked black pepper and sea salt. Long-lasting with layers of citrus sweetness and maritime peat ."
