Named after a famously peaty loch overlooked by the distillery, Loch Gorm is the only fully ex-sherry cask matured release in their range. Since it's first launch in 2012 a new edition of Loch Gorm has been released every year, each with it's unique balance of sherry influence and maturity. Bottlings are differentiated by distillation and bottling years printed on the label. Loch Gorm combines rich sherry fruits and spices with smouldering peat, cloves and lingering sweetness.
This is the 2015 release of Kilchoman's fantastic Loch Gorm well-Sherried single malt Scotch whisky. For the 2015 release, along with whisky which was matured in Oloroso Sherry butts (as the previous bottling were), the tiny distillery on the isle of Islay used whisky matured in Sherry hogsheads. Glorious stuff - great balance of Sherried goodness and peat.
The Kilchoman distillery (pronounced Kil-ho-man) is a distillery that produces single malt Scotch whisky on Islay, an island of the Inner Hebrides. The distillery is situated on the western side of Islay, near the small settlement of Kilchoman. The distillery began production in June 2005, and was the first to be built on the island of Islay in 124 years. The distillery uses barley grown on site at Rockside Farm and malted at the distillery, as well as malt from the Port Ellen maltings and it releases separate bottlings depending on the source of the grain. It is one of only six Scottish distilleries still doing traditional floor-maltings, and will be unique in having all parts of the process - growing barley, malting, distilling, maturing and bottling - carried out on Islay.
