While many peated whiskies follow the very traditional model of 100% peated malt to displaying a raw and heavy smoke character, Westland works to build on this tradition with new world sensibilities. They introduce non-peated malts, most of which are grown locally in Washington State, in a ratio that actually outweighs the peated malt. The addition of their innovative five-malt spirit in each bottling brings a balance of malty notes to the peat that reflects local creative culture.
Nose: Nuts, smoldering moss, flamed orange peel, roasted plantains.
