Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2021
The always hotly anticipated Loch Gorm release for 2021 is upon us. As usual every Loch Gorm annual release is matured entirely in sherry casks. This time it is a vatting of 24 oloroso sherry butts filled in 2011 and 2012. Which makes it a minimum of 9 year old according to our maths - behold our genius! Jam-packed with juicy-fruit and dry barbeque smoke, excellent as usual from the Islay farm distillery.
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.
