Loch Gorm 2019 Edition
Loch Gorm is Kilchoman annually released sherry matured limited edition. The loch, murky and peaty in colour, reflects the dark coppery tone of the sherry matured Loch Gorm release.
As the only release in there range to be fully matured in sherry casks (from filling to bottling), Loch Gorm has always attracted special attention from whisky fans, especially given that just 15,000 bottles will be released.
Loch Gorm has been evolving over the years, each new edition containing a different combination of casks. This year Anthony has selected twenty oloroso sherry butts from 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011, meaning that for the first time Loch Gorm will contain 12 and 13 year old casks.
“It has been fascinating to see first-hand how the character of our oloroso butts have developed. Recent editions of Loch Gorm have seen a coming-of-age for the range, the addition 12 and 13 year old casks add a fantastic balance and complexity.” Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder & MD
Anthony’s tasting notes: Layers of stewed plums, pears and tropical fruit have become more defined in the casks as they age, complimenting the bold, spicy and rich character of early releases, creating a beautiful marriage of Kilchoman and oloroso sherry cask maturation.
