Kilchoman Loch Gorm Sherry Cask bottled 2013

Kilchoman Loch Gorm is their first sherry matured release. Only 10,000 bottles released of the first edition but I hope it becomes part of their range. Loch Gorm was that good.

Aged only for 5 years in Oloroso butts and finished 2 months in Oloroso hogsheads, it manages to give an characteristic and smooth palate with an tasty and long finish. My favorite Kilchoman for sure so far.

Kilchoman Loch Gorm is feisty and sweet at the same time. It reminds me of the great boxing legend Sugar Ray Robinson who was feared but fought like a gentleman and took an interest in ballet. Since there's no movie about the original Sugar Ray, I'll reference this one with Scorsese's Raging Bull, where Sugar Ray appears as a character.

Raging Bull actually describes Kilchoman Loch Gorm pretty well, because under the sweet surface, there's a delicately raging core of smoke and spices.

Nose: Hints of honey liquor and syrup with almonds and peat. Under the sweet surface lays some smoke and spicy tones.

Taste: Great combination of delicate smoke and sweet sherry. Sherry or wine, go figure? Anyways, it's a good clash of two completely opposite tastes with hints of wood.

Finish: Peppery and woody with hints of peat. Quite long and spicy, a bit dry as well. Very nice ending to (in my opinion) Kilchoman's flagship whisky.

Balance: Very interesting indeed, nice marriage of sherry and smoke. Both have a strong presence and manage to make this dram worth your time.

You should, even though the Kilchomans are a bit pricy compared to their age because of the small production quantity. Loch Gorm is still worthy of what it costs. It was like a younger and more sherry containing version of Lagavulin 16 (which still is my absolute favorite).

I managed to grab a bottle of the new Coull Point and I can already say it is worth every penny. Unbelievably full bodied stuff for its age and the finish... I heard they only use first fill barrels, which is great:) Give Kilchoman your hard earned cash, they know exactly what to do with it:)


This is the third Kilchoman I've tried and at 5-6 Years Old the oldest too. Minty peat with sultanas on the nose with a note of toffee. In fact mint and toffee seems to be a consistent underlying profile of Kilchoman. Very powerful flavours for such a young whisky.

The palate matches the nose really with the peat even more noticeable now. Dried fruits? Wonderfully complex. The finish provides a waft of smoke, like a fine Havana Cigar.

This is the best Kilchoman I've tried and I have really high hopes for the distillery. To create such a complex full flavoured single malt at a mere 6 years old is very impressive. I can't wait for 2020 when hopefully we start seeing the 12-15yo releases. Destined to be a cracking malt in years to come.
