Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2016 Limited Edition
70cl / 46% abv
Kilchoman Distillery's fifth instalment of its limited release is inspired by Loch Gorm, the very dark and peaty waters located to the north of the distillery, similar to the dark rich colour of this sherry cask matured single malt.
Part of the Kilchoman range since it was first introduced in 2012, the Loch Gorm releases are unique as they are matured exclusively in Oloroso sherry casks from the farm distillery. For this latest edition, casks were selected from a combination of fresh and refill Oloroso sherry butts over six years of age, the oldest release of Loch Gorm to date.
Limited to just 17 casks worldwide, Loch Gorm has become a highly sought after release with its combination of powerful rich flavours, spicy notes and peat smoke.
The only independently owned Islay distillery is most famous as the only distillery in Scotland to produce a portion of it’s whisky from barley grown onsite, completing all stages of the whisky-making process themselves using traditional farm distillery methods.

Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder & MD
