American Oak is Seattle-based distillery Westland's flagship release. Made with barley from Washington, this is rich and creamy with notes of chocolate custard, almond and bananas.
Seattle distillery Westland uses locally sourced ingredients to create American single malt whiskies that honour the tradition of American whiskey-making with a Pacific North West twist.Tasting Notes (1)
- Milk Chocolate
Producer's Tasting Notes
The initial nose provides lemon and orange custard backed by freshly produced waffle cone. Shortly after, a rich creaminess emerges with creme brûlée and chocolate custard while a hint of jasmine hides just beneath the surface.
The first sip confirms the creamy and rich fruit custard notes of the nose, adding an element of rainier cherries. After five minutes, melting Swiss chocolate is revealed with a hint of almond. Extended tastings bring out bananas and cream with Turkish coffee.
More from Westland
More a bourbon than a single malt (but not a bourbon either). This would be interesting were it not that it is just a very young, not so interesting, maybe belongs in a cocktail more than having it neat and very, very overpriced so I will definitely not purchase this again.
This is a really interesting single malt. Although I didn’t get banana, I did get a coffee note. Otherwise tastes are as described. I will also say that a little water opens it up very nicely and the neck pour is more aggressive than following drams after the whiskey has had a chance to breathe. I would absolutely recommend.
