Westland American Single Malt Whiskey 750ML
"Our flagship Westland American Single Malt Whiskey represents the truest expression of our house style. At the core of this whiskey's flavor profile is a grain bill comprised of five different roasted and kilned barley malts giving our whiskey a character unique to Westland Distillery. The base is a pale malt, grown in the State of Washington. To that we add specialty malts, a concept inspired by the vibrant craft brewing culture of the Pacific Northwest. Deep and rich in flavors, these specialty malts contribute to the whiskey notes of chocolate, nuts, cookies, pastries, mocha, caramel and raisins. Our Belgian brewer's yeast further enhances flavor development, creating fruity esters during fermentation. And finally, maturing predominantly in the finest new American oak casks complements our other choices with vanilla, caramel and coconut notes, leaving us with an approachable and mature whiskey."
The initial nose is awash in cherry cake and graham cracker. But shortly after, a rich creaminess emerges with creme brûlée and chocolate custard while a hint of jasmine hides just beneath the surface. The first sip confirms the creamy and rich, mouth-coating cherry cake notes on the nose.
After five minutes the nose begins to reveal melting Toblerone chocolates, almonds and a touch of smoky pine. Waffle cone joins the group along with rainier cherries after a water addition. Extended tastings bring out white chocolate, Turkish coffee (with cardamom), bananas flambé and decadent cream.
