Quick Fire Whisky Tasting Notes

Kilchoman Loch Gorm
2019 Edition

Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
46% ABV
Nose: The last remaining smoking embers from a beach barbecue - a just opened bag of Frazzles – hoisin sauce – a clove studded Seville orange – sherry soaked ladyfingers – unbaked fruit cake mix – Werther’s Original soft caramels - sugar coated almonds – chocolate covered coffee beans – toasted cinnamon sticks and a tease of something mentholy fresh.
Palate: A salted coastal kiss of the sea – wood smoke – allspice – crispy smoked bacon rinds – Muller blueberry fruit corner yogurt - gooseberry compote – Dapple Dandy plums – chocolate limes - the cherry and slice of orange peel that’s been soaking up all the loveliness from an Old Fashioned – buttered slices of malt loaf and a sip-ette of espresso.
Finish: A vivacious and vibrant, lingering finish, that’s as full, fine and feisty as its first nose and sip!
Summary: Keeping it plain and simple, this is another beautifully balanced, kick ass, killer of a Kilchoman!
