Now I am watching a video about Islay while tasting this dram. It is a Kilchoman Machir Bay which consists of casks of 3,4 and 5 years. OK let's start The colour is citric nearly clear and produces the oily legs after about 15 seconds
Nose: A swallow of heavy peat fills the nose and sais hello, the second nose sais how are you, there is a lot of citrus and no sweetness.
Palate: Again peat in the mouth a prickle at the tip of the tongue
Finish: Peaty short finish.
With a teaspoon of water added
Nose: Nearly no difference to the first impression but softer,
Palate: The peat is no more on the tounge but rather in the throat and sits now in the middle of the tongue
Finish: Now not that short anymore This Kilchoman is very balanced and despite from the earlier releases already well matured.
