As with other ranges in our portfolio, Loch Gorm will be periodically re-released as a more mature expression. Each bottling will be differentiated by distillation and bottling years printed on the label. Loch Gorm combines rich sherry fruits and spices with smouldering peat, cloves and lingering sweetness.

Tasting Notes
Nose An instant hit of feisty peat smoke, which softens with time to become more earthy/mossy which then lets other aromas through. These include sweet malted barley, toffee, sultanas, bitter orange and toasted nuts. With time in the glass, these evolve into an aroma of baked oat cookies.
Colour Golden yellow with an amber tint
Taste A feisty peat smoke that hits first, along with a spicy, peppery heat. As on the nose it has an acrid and savoury edge that is reminiscent of coal tar soap. This time it has more of a 'medicinal' note, which made us think of surgical bandages. The smokiness softens to reveal plenty of malty barley notes, which add a sugary sweetness and softness. As with the nose, this note again moves towards baked oat cookies as it develops. Underneath are further notes of honey, juicy sultanas, candied orange peel and caramelised almonds. Hints of menthol, ginger powder and icing sugar finish
Finish A sweet notes and the persistent malted barley fade quite quickly, leaving the acrid and tangy peat smoke to play with your taste buds. This gives a powerful and drying mouth watering quality, backed up by hot chili-like heat.
