Am Bùrach means ‘the mess’ in gaelic. In 2014, two Kilchoman expressions were mistakenly combined, much like what happened in the Wild Turkey distillery a year earlier, which resulted in the Wild Turkey Forgiven. Kilchoman is not naming any names, but one sloppy m/f/x accidentally mixed Machir Bay (a core expression from Kilchoman) and Port Matured Kilchoman. Whoopsy daisy! The name ‘Am Bùrach’ stuck. This is 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 in 2014. The whisky was then filled back in bourbon barrels for a further six years ahead a six month ﬁnish 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 ﬁnish of dried fruit and citrus sweetness. A single malt not to be missed out on with just 10,550 bottles being released worldwide.
