Seattle's own Westland Distillery continues to impress with the release of their Sherry Wood expression. Aged for over two years in casks once used for Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso Sherry. The wood intensifies the malt and fruit notes of their signature Westland recipe. The luxurious, flavor-packed palate is brought together with gingery spice accents to the raisin and malt aromas. Complexity like this often comes with longer aging, this dram gets it right in short order!
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.
