    Deacon Seat was about $30 before tax. I think the standard unpeated Single Malt is ~$55

    Re: Westland Distillery - American Single Malts

    I picked up the last two bottles in this picture to complete my vertical of Westland limited release bottlings today.



    I've tried them all at the distillery in SoDo Seattle and Cask 29 is probably my favorite as it's got a touch of peat accompanied by the cask-strength oomph (story is that they randomly added different new makes to this barrel and promptly "forgot" about it)

    Deacon Seat: http://www.westlanddistillery.com/whiskey/deacon-seat
    First Peated: http://www.westlanddistillery.com/whiskey/first-peated
    Cask 29: http://www.westlanddistillery.com/whiskey/cask29
    Cask 52: http://www.westlanddistillery.com/whiskey/cask52

    I love that the big bottles use the Japanese Style screw tops.

    Re: Westland Distillery - American Single Malts

    Thanks to the generous assistance of a fellow SBer I will be able to add this relatively uncommon bottle, especially in these parts, to the Wednesday tasting lineup tomorrow!

    Re: Westland Distillery - American Single Malts

    Just tasting the unpeated single malt and I'm very impressed. The nose is sweet and fruity with a dense, cake-y weight to it. The palate is complex with a jammy sweetness that turns nutty and a roasted nuttiness comes on on the finish. The finish also betrays the young age with some sharper notes, but otherwise this is rich with flavor and character. Singular and quite tasty.
