Ardbeg Perpetuum and Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2015

On the whisky news side, in case you have not noticed yet, there are two magnificent drams: another will arrive soon and the other one is already here.

Ardbeg Perpetuum is going to combine Ardbeg tastes of the past, present and the future. It will be on sale 30.5.2015 and it is limited in numbers. Photo by Ardbeg.

Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2015 was released 23.3.2015. The price is £63 which makes this one probably half (or less) the price of the Perpetuum. This is also a limited bottling, but usually there is a bit more slack with Loch Gorms than with Ardbeg Day releases. Excerpt from Kilchoman’s mail

“The Loch Gorm releases are traditionally matured in ex Oloroso sherry butts and this latest edition is no exception. Where the 2015 version differs from the previous year is the use of sherry hogsheads to mature a portion of the whisky rather than just sherry butts.  This edition will also be marginally older than the five year old 2014 version, it being bottled from casks filled in both 2009 and 2010.  “
