46% | 70cl | NCF | Islay | 50ppm | Peated | 100% Sherry Matured | Limited Edition
Kilchoman Loch Gorm is the only annual limited edition from Kilchoman matured entirely in oloroso sherry casks. Year on year the vatting of Loch Gorm subtly changes (and sometimes not so subtly), in age, colour and character.
These ex-oloroso sherry casks impart a combination of heavy sherry notes, spicy dark chocolate, rich fruits and burnt sugar. This balances beautifully with the Kilchoman peat smoke and citrus fruits found within the farm-crafted spirit.
This, the 2021 edition, is a vatting of 24 oloroso sherry butts filled in 2011 and 2012.
NOSE: Macerated lemons, buttery shortbread and Moroccan spices give way to rich sherry notes and faint notes of peat smoke.
PALATE: Cloves, dark chocolate and juicy prunes with waves of roasted almonds, sultanas, nougat and peat embers.
FINISH: Herbaceous, earthy and maritime with liquorice, leather and a distinctly dry sherry-soaked finish.
