No stranger to watershed moments in American Single Malt Whiskey, our friends at Westland are back with a new, ongoing limited series, Colere. This first Edition is a monumental step forward for Westland and is pushing the whiskey industry forward. Using unique varieties of barley cultivated outside of the commodity system with the goal of enticing the most flavor possible from these grains.
Colere Edition 1 is made from Alba, a six-row winter barley, and matured in used casks to ensure the oak influence plays a supporting role. Aromas and flavors of honey, white chocolate, apples, and wafting leather tones greet the eager nose and palate. You'll find a richly toned palate and lengthy finish. Get in on the ground floor with this new series, buy one to taste and one to save!
Founded in the heart of Seattle in 2010, Westland Distillery is a family-owned business with roots in the Pacific Northwest reaching back five generations. They are one of the largest - if not the largest - craft distiller of single malt whiskey in the U.S. Each expression of single malt they produce both honors the time-honored traditions of distilling and adds something new and distinctly American. Regardless of the individual expression, every whiskey at Westland is underscored by the distillery's identifiable house style; a sweetness and ease on the palate, accompanied by a complex, fruity, grain-focused finish worthy of its place in this new world.
