|3 Kilchoman beauties in a row: Machir Bay, 100% Islay & Loch Gorm|
The guys at Single & Available organised a couple of tastings to introduce this really new label into the Malaysian market.
First, we learned that Kilchoman is actually pronounced as Kil-HO-man. Must be a Gaelic thing?
Secondly, Peter Willis, who came all the way from Scotland to take us through the tasting, is actually the SON of one of the co-founders.
Isn't it awesome when these companies take some time off their busy worldly schedules to spare a few moments for this tiny insignificant market? This drinker appreciates it very much! :)
So Kilchoman is practically still a baby. The distillery began production in 2005 - it's just about 9 years old this year!
