Kilchoman – Islay’s Farm Distillery presents:
Am Bùrach, gaelic for 'the mess', might seem a strange name for a limited edition single malt. That would be if you weren't aware of the story behind this unique bottling; the delicious consequence of an incident in 2014 where two different Kilchoman expressions were mistakenly combined.
The unnamed stillman, whilst vatting casks, accidentally mixed Machir Bay and Port Matured Kilchoman causing Islay Heads, General Manager, to describe the resulting whisky as 'Am Bùrach'. The name stuck. A true one-off, never to be repeated, Am Bùrach has a somewhat complicated nine year maturation, a vatting of bourbon and sherry matured Kilchoman combined with port cask matured before being ?lled back in bourbon barrels for a further six years ahead of a six month ?nish in ruby port casks. Regardless of how Am Bùrach came to be, its depth of character sets it apart, rich, fruity and sweet on the nose, it coats the palate with red fruits, creamy sweetness and herbaceous peat smoke on the palate before a long ?nish of dried fruit and citrus sweetness.
