Here we go!

2021 Kilchoman Loch Gorm

The highly anticipated Loch Gorm is once again ready for its annual release.  Named after Islay’s largest freshwater loch neighboring the distillery, Loch Gorm is the only Annual Limited Edition matured entirely in Oloroso Sherry Casks.  Year over year the vatting of Loch Gorm subtly changes (and sometimes not so subtly), in age, color, and character.

The 2021 edition, is a vatting of 24 Oloroso Sherry Butts filled in 2011 and 2012.  These large 500 liter Sherry Butts have been sourced from Bodega Miguel Martin in Spain and filled with Kilchoman spirit peated to 50 ppm.  Once these casks had been matured for a minimum of 9 years, they were then vatted together and bottled at 46% abv, resulting in 17,000 bottles being made available to Kilchoman fans around the world. 2,040 of these made it to the US and are on their way to specialty retailers near you.

“Rich bold flavours with a breadth, depth and balance of character that sets it apart, the 2021 edition is packed with juicy fruit, macerated lemon and sweet chargrilled BBQ smoke,”

~ Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder & and Managing Director

NOSE: Marzipan, citrus sweetness, floral soft fruit, and light peat smoke.

PALATE: Bright, fresh, lemon cheesecake, tropical fruit, and salty peat smoke.

FINISH: Rounded yet assertive with lasting citrus and stone fruits.

Kilchoman PX Sherry Matured

This special edition, the second of Kilchoman’s two Spring Limited Edition releases, is a combination of 33 casks – 9 fully matured in Pedro Ximénez casks and 24 finished in PX casks for between 12 and 18 months.

While Kilchoman has released a number of Pedro Ximénez Single Casks over the years, this is the first time they’ve vatted multiple casks together for a global release. Anthony and Robin spent many days in the warehouses tasting endless numbers of casks to find the perfect balance of character, constructing a whisky that showcases the rich sweet flavors of Pedro Ximénez Sherry but also reflects the signature flavors of Kilchoman’s 50 ppm spirit.

Bottled at 47.3% abv, this release yielded 12,000 bottle for the world to enjoy. 1,500 of these made it to the US.

“Pedro Ximenez casks aren’t always the easiest to work with.  That was why we decided on a combination of full maturation and finishing, to balance the distinct PX influence with that of our spirit.  I’m delighted with the result; big and bold but with a delightful poise and balance of flavor”

~ Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder & Managing Director

NOSE: Prunes, sultanas, and heathery peat smoke with fresh coffee, sea spray, and hints of citrus.

PALATE: Warming, with dark berries, caramelized brown sugar, tobacco leaf, licorice, and fruit cake with mixed spices and smoldering peat smoke.

FINISH: Rounded Sherry notes with waves of summer berries and dried spices.
