Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2021 Description
Loch Gorm is Kilchoman's annual sherry matured limited edition, named after the lake beside the distillery that has a dark colour similar to the rich, coppery tones of the whisky!
This 2021 edition is a vatting of 24 oloroso sherry butts filled in 2011 and 2012. These casks impart a combination of heavy sherry notes, spicy dark chocolate, rich fruits and burnt sugar, to balance with the Kilchoman peat smoke (50ppm!) and citrus fruits found within the distillery's signature flavour profile. De-licious.
A limited edition, just 17,000 bottles were produced at 46% abv without chill filtration or added colouring.
Nose: lemon peel, shortbread biscuit and Moroccan spices that give way to rich sherry notes and a wisp of peat smoke.
Palate: spicy and rich, with cloves, dark chocolate and dates; nutty with almonds, sultanas and more peat.
Finish: herbal and earthy; leathery with a dry sherry-soaked finish.
