On January 2, 2012 the first “Sherry Cask Release” from Kilchoman, limited to 6,000 bottles, has been released. It has been matured for 4.5 years in Oloroso Sherry Butts. In the future Kilchoman would bring out a Sherry Cask Release every year, but it was not until the second one in 2013 that it was named “Loch Gorm”.
Interestingly, the 600 bottles for the US market were still filled in the old bottle shape. It is known that the US bottles contain 750 ml instead of 700 ml as for the rest of the world. And there were apparently still some of these left, while the 700 ml bottles from Kilchoman have had a modified shape for some time now.
