Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2021 Release Single Malt Whisky 700ml
Loch Gorm is the name given to annual sherry matured limited edition. Named after Islay’s largest freshwater lake neighboring the distillery, the dark murky colour of the loch’s water is reflected in the rich coppery tones of our sherry matured Loch Gorm release.
Nose: Macerated lemons, buttery shortbread and Moroccan spices give way to rich sherry notes and faint notes of peat smoke.
Palate: Cloves, dark chocolate and juicy prunes with waves of roasted almonds, sultanas, nougat and peat embers.
Finish: Herbaceous, earthy and maritime with liquorice, leather and a distinctly dry sherry-soaked finish
ISLAY'S BIGGEST FRESH WATER LOCH
Loch Gorm is Islay’s biggest freshwater loch with an abundance of wildlife and dark peat coloured waters. The Allt Gleann Osamail burn, from which we collect our production water, is one of the loch’s major tributaries.
“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”
