Westland Distillery Peated American Single Malt Whiskey
|Category||Single Malt Whiskey|

This Peated Malt whiskey is a variation of Westland's house style made from a mash of peated malt that is among the smokiest in the world. It is combined with a variety of malt-focused spirits that together create a single malt whiskey that encompasses a wide spectrum of peaty and smoky flavors without dominating the palate. Westland’s Peated Malt is filled primarily into new American oak and 1st-fill used American oak, resulting in a multi-dimensional and balanced peated single malt whiskey.
The peated version of Westland's single malt is modestly smoky on the nose, but boldly smoky on the palate, overshadowing the pleasant notes of vanilla and caramel underneath. The peat flavor accelerates into the finish, growing peppery and relatively hot.
