  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Yes, that was a year with a lot of refill, it still has a lot of bourbon barrel notes and is definitely not overwhelmed by the sherry, the nose is great, the start is very nice, but it is a bit too bitter for me, honestly I would also like more sherry from a Loch Gorm, but that was also implemented in the following years
    • Nose
      Nice, greasy aromas come towards you, cinnamon smoke, salty, from the first impression definitely not too sherry-heavy, subtle raisins, a little chocolate, but also vanilla and a little lemon, dominant here is on the one hand the spicy smoke and the maritime notes that the sherry ranks a complementary, slightly nutty, sweet, pleasant, really nice sweet vanilla in the background, almost cake batter, nice
    • Taste
      sweet, creamy, intense, vanilla, smoke, oak, here too a subtle sherry influence, slightly nutty, dark fruits, some tobacco, then also maritime, salty, cinnamon, quite drinkable, nice start
    • Finish
      becoming drier, salt, ashy smoke, tart, bitten grape skin

    • Nose

      A mix of smoke and malt. It also has something metallic. That's something I don't really like.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Dry notes of grain, honeyed, peat smoke. Then accents of oak and fruit.
    • Finish
      84 84
      A medium to long sweet aftertaste. The peat smoke dominates. The metallic notes remain

    Notes dated 2015-02-28

    Beautiful balanced malt for lovers of temperate smoke sherry combinations.
    • Nose
      A very balanced smoke note with the right amount of phenolic notes paired with sweet notes of red fruits like red currant and blackberry. In addition, a slightly minty freshness in the background.
    • Taste
      Strong and sweet with clear, but balanced smoky notes, subtle licorice and a slightly peppery spiciness.
    • Finish
      long, sweet and slightly hot

  6. dramspotter scored this whisky 45 points Connoisseur

    When I had this early edition of Loch Gorm I was really revolted by it. Later editions (and my palate) have resulted in more favourable reviews.

      Sickening; Briny Foul Flyspray

  8. Thermidor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Comparable in quality to contemporary Laphroaig 10, so I'll score them the same. Caol Ila 12 wins by one point thanks to its better finish.
    • Nose
      Drier and as such more likable than Saligo Bay, which is funny considering this one's sherry casked. Simple, with greasy peat, boat tar, faint celery, and dry oak, but seems to work well. The peat is probably hiding most of the sherry, since I'm having trouble finding it. 
    • Taste
      Very tarry. Everything else seems to take the back seat. Truth be told, it's extremely simple and a bit one-dimensional, but there are no flaws nor odd tastes. Some hints of vanilla push thtough every now and the, along with some cigar ash.
    • Finish
      The weakest part. Quick and forgettable, leaving barely any memory of its passing. 

  9. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    My first kilhoman is not bad, but scanty, straightforward simple aroma, then a hopeful taste and slightly disappointing aftertaste, in general such "OktoMor superlight" does not cause rejection, taking into account the young age - we will try other products of the manufacturer.
    • Nose
      Smoke, dry burned logs, ash, peat in the background, that's all, in fact - not too diverse, but rich and rather delicate, that-whether.
    • Taste
      Smoky-peppery, a powerful attack in the beginning, then everything is smoothed out by a moderate sweetness of dried fruits and raisins.
    • Finish
      Peat, pepper, cowberry leaves, young bark - a light bitter-sweet finish, the duration is average, empty and poor - after a powerful taste expected more.
