Kilchoman Loch Gorm Reviews
Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Nose: A barnyard bonfire kicks things off: burning peat and hay, with a touch of well-trodden mud and a hint of distant cowshed. Behind the smoke lies sweet grass and a gentle sea breeze, along with sweet butter and pink shrimp sweets.
Palate: Sweet smoke and gravelly minerality are joined by concentrated grape sweetness: raisin and sultana jam. Light fruit cake with a dusting of spice pops up behind, along with apple jam and dry oaky spice. The fruity notes hold the middle ground.
Finish: Dark chocolate and minerally smoke fade to leave salt and caramel.
Comment: A much more refined dram than some previous Loch Gorms, with well-integrated sherry notes letting the maritime spirit and smoke shine.
