This is the second Loch Gorm Single Malt to be released. The first, which was released in April last year, was awarded the prestigious 2013 IWSC Gold (2013 edition). Each release is differentiated by the distillation and bottling dates on the front of the bottle and carton.
Fully matured from filling to bottling in fresh Oloroso sherry butts, Loch Gorm adds a new dimension to Kilchoman’s portfolio, bringing a depth of character and colour to the Islay Single Malt. The Loch Gorm range is the only all sherry cask-matured expression from Kilchoman.
The 2014 realease was filled into fresh Oloroso sherry butts in 2009 and bottled in spring 2014, this full ex-sherry cask maturation creates a unique balance of classic Kilchoman character and rich Oloroso sherry influence.
