Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 46%
The 2022 edition of Kilchoman's wildly popular Oloroso sherry matured Loch Gorm single Islay malt has a broader age range than the previous edition. While the 2021 Loch Gorm contained whiskies from 2011-2012 only, this 2022 edition is made up of 22 Oloroso sherry butts that were distilled between 2007-2013, giving an age range of between 8-14 years old.
Almost all of the casks used for this Loch Gorm were fresh Oloroso sherry butts, with just two refill casks in the assemblage, and as ever Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2022 has been bottled at 46% without colouring or chill filtration, so it goes without saying that this will be terrific stuff for fans of the Islay-Jerez peat'n'sherry combo that Kilchoman do so well.
Please note that Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2022 is Strictly Maximum 1 Bottle Per Customer. Duplicate orders will be deleted.
