This is the second release from this up-and-coming craft distillery matured in oak barrels made from “Garry Oak,” a species native to the Pacific Northwest known for its intensely spicy profile. A uniquely local whiskey, this opens with robust, dark aromas of clove spice, wood smoke and toffee. Raw honeycomb, peppermint and earth fills the palate leading to a cocoa-dusted finish accented by a savory hint of smoke. This is your chance to slow down and enjoy a fine glass of the Pacific Northwest.
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.
