Kilchoman's Machir Bay is the distillery's lovely and subtle core expression. The nose offers strong peat and yeasty biscuit notes, followed by an intense green apple sweetness that reminded me of those scented Strawberry Shortcake dolls of the 1980s. (Indeed, after conducting a bit of internet research, I discovered there was an apple-based character named Apple Dumplin', so we'll go with that.)

Sweet flavors dominate the palate, soft and substantial, like rich angel food cake with sugary icing. The finish is long and spicy-sweet with an afterburn of cinnamon red-hots.
