Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman Loch Gorm

29 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.56 points

  1. just 2thetop scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    A solid sherry smokey whisky from a drinkers PoV
    This is no sherry bomb and an okay balance - the smoke appears shortly after the sherry.
    Quality sherry casks used but not first fill it seems to me - all 9 years old I'm told
    The 2020 Loch Gorm was more interesting from the complexity, perhaps due to the mix of some older matured spirit 11-13 years and got a fat 90 points from me.
    Not sure if the spirit is really suited to all sherry as the bourbon casks work so well.
    Therefore this one only gets 88 points from a Kilchoman fanboy.
    Would still recommend a buy for around 75 EUR in Germany.

    Quite unusual to find a struck match in a Kilchoman. But since it remains subtle, it does not represent a flaw and only provides an exciting factor. A nice whisky.

      The sherry barrels get going right away, providing fermented grapes, blackberries and leather on the nose. And there actually seems to be a small note of a torn match working its way forward. To use the bad word: sulfur. Mild smoke, smoked ham, pepper, paprika spice.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Dry start, makes a mature impression from the start (since I had the young Kilchoman Loch Gruinart in the glass shortly before, this is very noticeable). Blackberries, blueberries, grapes, dark chocolate, freshly roasted coffee beans. The peat smoke does not float above everything, but firmly adheres to the aromas. The match from the nose cannot be made out on the tongue.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium long, slightly dry, increasingly spicy. Berry sweetness, moldy wood, leather.

  3. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Solid Kilchoman. I expected more from the sherry barrels. A little too expensive compared to the Sanaig, which offers something similar, if not more.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Salty, quartz peat smoke, somewhat reminiscent of Bowmore. Behind it yellow pith and plum with a little fruity sweetness. Dried dates. Red forest berries. Barbecue western sose.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Salty start. In addition, pepper and peat smoke. Little fruit, with a hint of plum and dried fruit. Pretty dry.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Ash, smoke, salt, a little spice. Will be even drier. Medium length.

  5. St. Pauli scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    All raised in oloroso sherry butts in the latest bottlings as opposed to the earlier that had a share of hogshead matured whisky. It makes for a slow but even maturation, leading to a balanced whisky. It's powerful enough, but greatly soft and "sweet".
    • Nose
      Distinct smokiness, not really in your face. It's rather toffee-ish and nutty, on Christmas Pudding. Still some citrus (orange zest), still some barley and soft spice.
    • Taste
      Rather sweet, almost raisin-like, but with good punch. Christmas cake is dominant, the smoke is there but very gently. Further, mixed nuts, date, toffee, a bit of citric acidity and warming cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Rich, moderately sweet and warming on spice and nuts. BBQ'ed orange (try it), cinnamon, nuts, liqueur, gentle bbq smoke, cooked fruit.

  15. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Rich sherry, full of various fruits, plums, juicy plums, Muscat grapes, blackcurrants, blackberries, peeled tomatoes, all combined with a bewitching smoke, chimney fire, hot ashes, glowing embers, we are in front of the hearth at to warm up the arpions. On the palate, the swarm of fruits continues, it's really very pleasant, you'd think you were drinking a variety of fruit juices, but with a nice depth, heather earth, volcanic rock, crumbling coal, lignite. Finally a very good but not extremely long finish, here too it is successful, with floral reflections, wine, tannins, damp earth. Very slight touch of bitterness.
