    Do you mean that we somehow now put the (e) on everything in some sort of official manner?

    Re: Westland Distillery - American Single Malts

    I finally got my hands on a bottle - to my dismay of paying the current asking price. Man, this stuff is as delicious as I remembered. I wish it had just a bit more age on it but for the most part, the new oak takes care of the malt-forwardness in the respect. One of my favorite parts of this whiskey though is the taste. It is a really great, roasted chocolate finish. Almost like a porter or stout sans any hop profile. Not sure if they are really worth the asking price as a daily drinker but so, so interesting. PA will be getting a Single Barrel of Westland that will be a CS version of the American Oak offering and I am excited to see how that pans out. I really want to try the peated and the sherry now!

    Sounds like they are making some good stuff out in the Pacific Northwest. That said, upwards of $90 for a 2-3 year old single malt seems a bit steep. Might still give it a try...but the bar is set pretty high when you drop that kind of coin on such a young whiskey.
