    Re: Westland Distillery - American Single Malts

    I'm partial to peat and peat+sherry is a combination I really dig... but it's a toss-up honestly between #279 (peat+PX) & #283 for me right after opening - they're both really good. I was also fortunate enough to get one of the SCN Westlands (also peat+Oloroso):



    The #279 is opening up very very nicely to the point where it has surpassed the #283 (they were about even right at opening for me). The SCN Westland is BBQ & browned butter upon opening - I expect it will get better as it opens up...

    #29 is delicious as well but while it has less peat than #279/#283, it's still got enough peat to make it interesting.

    I've tried the others at the distillery but haven't opened my own bottles yet.

    Re: Westland Distillery - American Single Malts

    was able to finally score a bottle of the American Single Malt last week at Cask here. Very nice and smooth, it has a touch of sweetness but was not overwhelming. Although i prefer the peatier side, this is simply a very good whiskey imho.

    Have the regular malt locally and supposed to get the regular peated, which I have had before, and sherry offering, which I don't think I have had, soon. Looking forward to them both despite the fact that they are rather spendy. And doubt that either will be able to match the Cask 29 single barrel I got a while back thanks to the efforts of a couple of SBers. Look forward to more mature future efforts and availability from them if they can keep the price out of the stratosphere.

    agreed, i found a lonely bottle of regular malt at bevmo here so was able to put that one away in the back, and keeping my eye on their future efforts as well. a great first impression for sure.

    The regular Westie should be in most good sized stores. DeKalb Bottle House had it when I was last there.
