Kilchoman launch Loch Gorm 2023 Limited Edition Release: 22 casks, distilled minimum of 8 years.
Published Date: 15th March 2023
The eagerly awaited annual release of Loch Gorm has arrived! The vatting has been completed and bottles will be hitting shelves around the world any day now.
Named after the famously dark, peaty loch overlooked by the distillery, our annual Loch Gorm limited edition is our only regular expression matured entirely in oloroso sherry casks.
For the 2023 Edition Anthony and Robin selected a total of 22 casks, distilled for a minimum of 8 years.
Each cask was chosen for its unique flavour profile which, when combined together with the other 21 casks, create a beautiful balance of rich fruity character with layers of classic Kilchoman peat smoke and citrus sweetness.
"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,"
Nose: Hints of cacao with an essence of leather, black cherry and light smoke
Palate: Roasted hazelnuts, dark chocolate and roasted dark fruits give way to light ashy peat smoke
Finish: Balanced and long with fresh Islay sea breeze
