Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2022 Release Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
This is the eleventh 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.
Loch Gorm, exclusively sherry matured limited edition has been a feature of the Kilchoman range since 2012.
The 2022 edition is made up from 22 casks, selected are a combination of 20 fresh and 2 refill casks.
The sherry soaked oak adds layers of rich fruity character which balance beautifully with classic Kilchoman peat smoke and citrus flavours.
17,250 bottles worldwide.
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: intense sweet pipe smoke, followed by waves of freshly cut strawberries and candied lemon peel. Lighter notes of Neroli (orange blossoms), soft toffee and cloves.
Palate: : An initial note of dark chocolate and toasted walnuts, gentle tobacco smokiness, hints of caramel and dates accompanied by subtle warming peat smoke.
Finish: : Long and evolving with cinnamon and liquorice wood, chocolate bitters and lingering earthy smoke.

“Having selected casks that range in age from eight to fourteen years old, this year’s vatting combines both the youngest and oldest casks we’ve selected for recent editions of Loch Gorm. The freshness of the eight year old casks combined with the layered complexity of the older casks gives it a fantastic balance of rich, fruity oloroso influence which pairs beautifully with the citrus sweetness and peat smoke of Kilchoman."
