Bottled at 46% the Loch Gorm is Kilchoman's sherried Islay expression. Depending on the batch it is matured approximately 5-7 years in Oloroso Sherry and bottled without colouring or chill-filtering. The more recent bottlings have contained some older whisky. The 2019 is a vatting of twenty oloroso sherry butts from 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011, the first edition to contain 12 and 13-year-old casks.

Killchoman is Islay's smallest and only farm distillery. Their whiskies are among our best selling Islay malts.

Producer Description

"Named after a famously dark and peaty loch overlooked by the distillery, Loch Gorm is a sherry cask single malt matured exclusively in oloroso casks, extracting the rich spicy character of the European oak as it ages in our Islay warehouses."

Producer Tasting Note (2019 Edition)

Nose: Dried fig, orange peel and sea salt with hints of bacon, oaky spice, cinnamon and citrus sweetness.

Palate: Stewed plums, morello cherries and dark chocolate with layers of salted caramel, herbaceous heather, honey and wet ashy peat smoke.

Finish: Cooked apples and pears with waves of all spice, dark chocolate and barbeque smoke.

Andrew's Tasting Note 2018 Edition

Nose: nutty and earthy with loads of dark fruits: raisins, dates and figs; bright Manukah honey, dark milk chocolate and chewy malt; a hint of earthy smoke and briny medicinal tones but the sherry is firmly in charge; late emerging leather and tobacco.

Palate: more dark fruits, chewy juicy malt and firm earthy-smoke; leathery and tarry with licorice and tobacco leaf; cooked raisins, grilled dates and baked prosciutto wrapped figs; dark, bitter, bakers chocolate; savoury salty tones, sea salt caramel infused chocolate with chilli flakes.

Finish: rich, long, coating and dark: spices, chocolate and smoke slowly fade out; if this is your final malt of the night it will last until morning!

Comment: more balanced and elegant than earthy versions of the whisky; Kilchoman is coming of age and I like what I see!
