Quick Fire Whisky Tasting Notes

Westland Garryana 6th Edition
American Single Malt Whiskey
50% ABV / RRP £165.00

Nose: An enticing and very inviting allure of dates, raisins, poached pears, toffee apples, grilled peaches, summer pudding, dulce de leche and warm Danish pastries. Followed by honey nut cornflakes, malt loaf, cherry lozenges, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, rich oak, tobacco leaf, wood spice and a stick of seaside rock.

Palate: Wave upon wave of wood spice, calvados steeped raisins and prunes, apricots, grilled peaches and toffee apples. Followed by demerara sugar, hazelnuts, toasted coconut chips, malt loaf, espresso coffee, mixed spice, cayenne pepper and Fireball Jawbreakers.

Finish: A full-on, right rollicking ride of finish, that lingers on, and on, and on…

Summary: This is actually my first foray into the Seattle, Washington based Westland Distillery, and it certainly won’t be my last! This 6th release in their limited-edition Garryana series, is as brazen as it is beautiful and as gutsy as it is glorious!
