A lovely annual limited edition Islay Single Malt aged in Oloroso Sherry casks that tastes like a summer evening.

The Kilchoman Distillery is unique for several reasons. It is the first new distillery on Islay in over 125 years. It's one of only six Scotch distilleries to carry out traditional floor maltings, and one of only two to do the malting, distilling, maturing, and bottling on site. Furthermore, they even grow 30% of their Barley right there on the farm. It was started in 2005 by Anthony Wills, who ran an independent single cask bottling company for 8 years before this and is obsessed with building the ultimate farm distillery where he can take Whisky back to its roots.

Kilchoman Loch Gorm is a limited edition annual release. Each year their master blender goes into the warehouses and selects an amazing array of Sherried Single Malt casks and marries then into Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Then they are bottled at a perfect 46% ABV without artificial coloring. There is no age statement because that would be impossible with a blend like this. But we’ve seen editions where the youngest Whisky is five years-old and the oldest is twelve years-old. The flavor profile is smoky and sweet and rich… like sipping a Macallan at a Kansas City smokehouse BBQ.

Corner
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).
