Spirits Review

Westland Peated and Sherry Wood Whiskies

Seattle’s Westland Distillery may be the country’s foremost producer of American single-malt whiskey, especially considering its most recent releases. The Peated blends a heavily peated spirit with a mash of fruity, grainy Washington-grown pale malt to give a whiskey with the smoky snarl of peat that’s elegantly tucked into a smooth, harmonious drink. The Sherry Wood whiskey shows a similar touch, the maple and toffee hallmarks of Sherry oak present but not overwhelming.
