The Islay based Kilchoman Distillery, has today announced the launch of its latest limited-edition Loch Gorm release.

Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2023 Edition

Loch Gorm, is the name given to its annual Sherry cask matured limited-edition. The dark copper tone of the whisky is said to reflect the murky and peaty colour of its namesake loch, which is overlooked by the distillery.

Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2023 Edition, is said to deliver notes of cacao, leather, black cherry and light smoke on the nose. Followed by notes of roasted hazelnuts, dark chocolate, dark fruits and ashy peat smoke on the palate.

Commenting on the launch, Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Distillery Founder, said: “Rather than dominating, Loch Gorm’s oloroso maturation works in harmony with the natural character of Kilchoman.  The 2023 release has a fantastic spectrum of flavour, from rich spices and macerated peaches to fresh citrus, ginger, orange zest and waves of salty peat smoke."

Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2023 Edition, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £80.50.
