Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2021 Release Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
This is the tenth annual Loch Gorm Single Malt to be released by Kilchoman. Each release is differentiated by the distillation and bottling dates on the front of the bottle and gift carton.
Kilchoman’s Loch Gorm releases are traditionally matured in ex Oloroso sherry casks from the renowned bodega, Jose Miguel Martin and this latest edition is no exception.
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 this farm crafted spirit.
Loch Gorm, exclusively sherry matured limited edition has been a feature of the Kilchoman range since 2012. The 2021 edition is made up of 24 oloroso sherry butts filled in 2011 and 2012, bottled at 46% abv without any chill filtration and colouring.
17,000 bottles worldwide.
Kilchoman spirit peated to 50ppm.
This range is named after a famously peaty loch over looked by the distillery; Kilchoman draws water for the production of Loch Gorm and their other releases from the burn that runs into the loch.
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 ember.
Finish: Herbaceous, earthy and maritime with liquorice, leather and a distinctly dry sherry-soaked finish.
