Westland Distillery Peated American Single Malt
Regularly $79.99, Introductory Price $69.99

This week I’m offering a delicious whiskey from Westland Distillery of Seattle, WA. Their American Oak single malt was excellent but I thought their peated whiskey was even more interesting. It’s very lightly peated which allows you to be able to taste all of the other flavors. If you’re a whiskey enthusiast and haven’t tried this you really need to check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

A variation on the American Oak, the Peated Malt whiskey is made from a mash of peated malt that is among the smokiest in the world. This peated malt 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.

The peat character is sturdy enough to satisfy the cravings of those looking for a solid dose of smoke, while malt-focused mash bills contribute grainy and fruity notes that round out the whiskey. 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.
