Tasting Notes

"Everything about the Kilchoman Loch Gorm '19 expresses a keen richness - the deep copper color, the slowly descending legs, and the powerful aromas that escape from the glass right from the first pour. The peat here is more 'boggy' than smoky and the sherry casks add a dark backdrop of leather and very dry stone fruits. On the palate, it is a satisfyingly robust spirit with buttered biscuit flavors followed by crisp white pepper and slightly drier smoky notes."
