Established in 2005, Kilchoman (pronounced Kilhoman) is one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland. Based on a farm on the rugged west coast of Islay, Kilchoman is the first distillery to be built on the Island for 125 years. Kilchoman gives everyone the chance to see what is best about the grass-roots traditions of malt distilling. As well as being one of only a handful of distilleries still practicing floor malting, we also grow our own barley at the distillery, completing all parts of the production process at the distillery – from barley to bottling.
The 2020 edition of Loch Gorm is a vatting of 21 Oloroso Sherry Butts from 2007, 2008, 2009, & 2011 Named after a famously peaty loch overlooked by the distillery, Loch Gorm is the only fully ex-sherry cask matured release in our range.
NOSE: Rich briney and peaty, with hints of apricot and honeyed ham.
PALATE: Velvety texture reminiscent of peach skin, salty toffee and honey.
FINISH: Long finish that features dried fruit, phenol and kelp.
