Kilchoman To Release 2013 Machir Bay Malt

Kilchoman Machir BayMachir Bay is the beach on Islay just down the road from the farm where Kilchoman is located, and this expression was introduced in 2012 as a tip of the hat to a favorite spot for Ileachs to relax. The 2013 Machir Bay expression differs slightly from the original, in that it uses whisky from 4 and 5-year-old ex-Bourbon casks finished for four weeks in ex-Oloroso Sherry butts. The original used a vatting of 3, 4, and 5-year-old casks.

The 2013 edition will be available starting March 4, with global distribution expected at a suggested retail price of around $60 USD per bottle.
