The youngest Islay distillery (the first to be built on the island for 125 years), Kilchoman is not afraid to try new things. While it waits for age statements to catch up with ambition, Kilchoman has set aside spirit to rest in a project called Loch Gorm (named for the very peaty loch bordering the property). This is the first whisky Kilchoman has aged from start to finish in ex-Olorosso sherry casks.
The first release was aged 5 years and offered to the public in 2013, with re-releases every year since. As it ages, the spirit continues to develop character, and coming years should see interesting developments in terms of depth and complexity. The distillation notes and bottling years are on the label to differentiate between releases – this sounds a little like the beginnings of a collection, or at the very least an epic tasting session 10 years from now.
