Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2017
Loch Gorm is the name given to the annually released sherry cask matured limited edition from Kilchoman. The loch is located to the north of the distillery and is very dark and peaty in colour, similar to the dark rich colour of Kilchoman sherry cask matured single malt. The much anticipated 2017 edition is the distillery sixth instalment of this limited release. It has been matured exclusively in Oloroso sherry butts filled in 2009.
With the majority of Kilchoman production being matured in ex bourbon barrels from Buffalo Trace, Loch Gorm remains the only worldwide release that has been matured exclusively in Oloroso sherry casks. Like with many of Kilchomans releases, the Loch Gorm has been evolving over the years and the 2017 edition will have bee n matured in sherry butts for the longest period. This extra maturation has given it a full bod ied richness to combine with the peat smoke and fruity flavours typical of a Kilchoman whisky.
This is a limited release with only 13,500 bottles being released worldwide.
Nose: Orange and lemon notes, rich smoky peat and cooked fruit.
Palate: Rich chocolate, cinnamon and cloves combined with peat smoke.
Finish: Long and full bodied with a balance of sweet smoke.
