    Kilchoman Loch Gorm

    ▪️Nose: Starts with smoke, oak and bacon, followed by dried fruits, raisins, toffee, spice and citrus notes
    ▪️Palate: An explosion of flavours. Oiliness with chocolate, smoke, dried fruits, toffee and honey
    ▪️Finish: Oily and rich. Intense smoke with chocolate and fruits
    ▪️ I will happily give this whisky 94/100 because it’s delicate and rich and it leaves an oily mouthfeel with a nice smokiness. The smokiness never overpowers the rest of the flavours though.
    I did enjoy it more without water.

    Very successful sherry barrel Islay. Whether everyone wants to spend about 70 euros and more for a whisky from 13 to 8 year old barrels I can not say, for me as a Kilchoman friend a must.

      Beautiful sherry barrel typical dark fruits in the foreground, besides salty decent smoke, goes in the direction of ham. In the course and especially with the second nose then also citrus fruits.

      First sweetness that changes quickly towards caramel, accompanied by salt and spice. The smoke is clear but not intrusive and fills in the course along with the wort pretty mouth. Stay together with the salt in the corner of ham
    • Finish
      84 84
      In the finish dark chocolate and salt and of course the smoke continues. The combination with the chocolate gives me associations with coffee and espresso. The smoke remains for a while, but overall the finish could be a bit longer. Will probably be the age.

    A very dark sherry interferes in the nose, and marries dangerously with a very mineral and vegetable peat. It's almost meaty, with smoked ham, tar, tire, stone, spices, and of course red berries, raspberries, currants, blackcurrants. Some tides of the tide bring us fish and pebbles. In the mouth, pomegranate, leather, elastic, it is quite robust, with the marine side of the peat that structure everything. It's a little too sweet in the final, but it is long though, the sherry comes out, with caramel.
