Westland Westland American Oak

Description

A flagship malt is the core expression of a distillery’s house style. Westland’s American Oak is a reflection of where it is made and the collective intent of those who made it. When we founded Westland Distillery, we had a vision for an entirely new category of whiskey. Distilled from the rich, flavorful barley of Washington State and matured predominantly in new American oak casks in the steady, cool humidity of our seaside home, this whiskey is a testament to that vision. All of these choices and ingredients conspire to create an approachable, mature and uniquely American single malt that can stand with the finest whiskies in the world.

Westland’s range of single malts is completely approachable in light of its merits. The American Oak expression has won countless awards and its critical acclaim is a further testament to the quality of this distinguished whiskey.

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Nose

    The initial nose provides lemon and orange custard, backed by freshly made waffle cone.
  • Rich Creaminess

    Shortly after, a rich creaminess emerges with creme brûlée and chocolate custard, while a hint of jasmine hides just beneath the surface.
  • Palate

    The first sip confirms the creamy and rich fruit custard notes of the nose, adding an element of Rainier cherries.
  • Finish

    After five minutes, melting swiss chocolate is revealed with a hint of almond. Extended tastings bring out bananas and cream with Turkish coffee.

“We want to take these things and push them in a new direction. We're playing by the same rules as they do in Scotland—it's the same four ingredients—but there's so much that's untapped. We do not want to replicate what they do. We want to express our own time, place and culture and create an authentically American single malt.” - Matt Hofmann, Co-Founder


Origins

Westland Distillery was co-founded by Matt Hofmann in 2010 in Seattle, WA. The distillery mashes, distills, matures and bottles American Single Malt Whiskey in the heart of the Pacific Northwest. The distillery is situated in the SoDo neighborhood of Seattle and boasts a 13,000 square foot distillery with a 5,000 mash-house, five 10,000 liter fermenters and two copper pot stills.

At the heart of the distillery's house style is a barley bill that includes five exceptional roasted and kilned barley malts, the base of which is pale malt grown right in the State of Washington. The inspiration for this recipe that includes (Munich Malt, Extra Special Malt, Pale Chocolate Malt and Brown Malt) came from the rich brewing culture of the Pacific Northwest. These malts are mashed together then fermented with a Belgian brewer’s yeast for 144 hours. The whiskey is then distilled through Westland’s copper-pot stills and matured in a combination of Cooper's Select New American Oak, Cooper's Reserve New American Oak, and first fill ex-bourbon barrels.
