  1. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very balanced integration of the sherry casks. Not too dominant, not too pale, actually just right to have enough of the distillery character on the tongue.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Soft and sweet with berries (blackberries, black currants), grapes and raisins. Dry wood and very subtle smoke. Cardamom and cinnamon, a little grated ginger. Nougat chocolate, caramel candy, soft fudge.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Soft and smooth start, directly dosed sherry sweetness with raisins, dried figs, ripe grapes. On the tongue with clear smoke, still holding back more than dashing forward. Chocolate notes and cocoa powder accept the fruit notes well and are closely related. Ginger, cinnamon, curry powder.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-length finish, increasing warm peat smoke, mixed with raisins and grapes. Leather and a mild mixture of spices set a nice accent.

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    smoky, fruity and sweet
    a little caramel, a little chocolate and some spices
    mouth:
    meat smoke, a little barbecue sauce, peppery spices here, cooked basket fruit and sweet syrup
    cooked fruits (peach, poached apple, raisins) go well with the peat, very present and moist, a little seaweed in the background, a little vanilla with caramel, a little grassy, a little creamy, spices going up.
    final:
    peat, woody, dry smoke, fruit cooked on sherry, and peppery spices.

  3. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    In the glass today, Loch Gorm in the 2020 edition. I already found one of its predecessors very impressive and so I was no less excited about the current bottling. Amber colors, 46% vol. And wide windows in the glass are promising.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Maritime-sweet smoke the first time you smell it, a surge of aromas comes towards me. Fine sandalwood, red currant, some cinnamon, mace, raisins, vanilla, caramelized peanuts. The aromas are very balanced and harmonious and prepare the palate great for the first sip. Great job. Nothing stings, nothing pinches. Just round, juicy and inviting.
    • Taste
      90 90
      On the palate, initially oily sweetness, then the smoky taste sets in very clearly. The maritime note only develops again in the finish, while oily sherry, dark fruits, raisins, vanilla, prunes, sandalwood, cardamom and honey burn off the fireworks on the palate.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long finish, with smoky sweetness and sparkling mint on the palate. Then an invigorating freshness sets in, which leads you back to the maritime note. Really great job.

    It would be a real monster at cask strength

  5. coldsun scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Peaty smoke, oloroso, dusty dry grass with pepper and citric zest cut.

    Issue price approx. € 70.

  9. nallacam scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Peat gets straight into my nose, with a certain acidity that I have never noticed before. Red sour fruits, tobacco, chocolate, wine gum, new carpet, burnt gum, herbs, beeswax.
    After a few minutes, everything looks more compact and harmonious. Pleasant and with the Kilchoman distillery character.

      Not too strong a start, spicy, with a full but round load of peat. Creamy, flattering, sweet and herbal.
      A clear sherry note is more in the nose than to recognize / taste on the palate.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Dry, medium length, cold ash, herbal candy

  10. JimJaws scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Sherry, smoky and greasy - great combination.
