A limited edition release, Kilchoman’s Loch Gorm 2018 is named after Islay’s largest freshwater lake neighbouring Kilchoman distillery. The rich coppery tones of this release perfectly reflects the dark, murky tones of the Loch’s water. Drawn from a vatting of 19 Oloroso sherry butts, the end result is an explosion on the senses. Macerated lemons, buttery shortbread and Moroccan spices are all present on the nose combined with Kilchoman’s distinct Islay peat smoke and citrus fruits characteristics. with distinct notes of Islay Peat smoke. The palate is rich, complex and beautifully balanced between rich spicy notes, dark chocolate, cooked fruits and burnt sugar. The finish is long-lasting and utterly delicious.
“The Oloroso sherry maturation of Loch Gorm gives it a beautiful balance of big rich sherry flavours which pair very nicely with the peat smoke, soft fruits and typical sweetness of Kilchoman” – Anthony Wills, Founder
