Westland American Oak (700ml)
Westland American Oak stands as the greatest departure from Scottish whisky-making tradition. In the pursuit of an authentically American single malt whiskey, Westland brings their signature five-malt grain bill together with new American oak casks—two things practically unheard of in the old world. This combination produces a dramatically different whiskey from what is now commonplace and expected in the single malt category. But just as traditional styles of single malt from Scotland emerged as a reflection of regions such as Islay and Speyside, so too does American Oak stay true to the provenance of the Pacific Northwest.
