Westland Peated American Single Malt Whiskey
Westland American Oak Single Malt Peated Whiskey is made from five exceptional roasted and kilned barley malts the base of which is pale malt grown right in the state of Washington. Drawing inspiration from the rich brewing culture of the Pacific Northwest, several specialty malts (Munich Malt, Extra Special Malt, Pale Chocolate Malt and Brown Malt) are then added before the resulting mash is fermented with a Belgian brewer’s yeast for 144 hours.
This Westland peated malt is an inspired whiskey, crafted from a variation of their house malt style, and made from some of the smokiest peat in the world. Combining a plethora of spirits with malt-focused profiles yields a single malt that masters the spectrum of peaty and smoky flavors, creating a balance that doesn’t dominate the palate. The peat is solid dose of smoke to satisfy peat lovers, while the malt-forward profile mash bill forms a well-round whiskey with cross appeal. Being entirely filled into new American oak and ex-bourbon casks also adds a new dimension to the peated whiskey.
