Kilchoman Am Burach 0,7l plo Am Bùrach, gaelic for ‘the mess’, might seem a strange name for a limited edition singlemalt. 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 filled back in bourbon barrels for a further six years ahead of a six month finish in ruby port casks.
