TASTING NOTES​

NOSE: Opens on rich red fruits and warm, welcoming grain. The warm hug continues with apricot jam, and warm Hostess™ pie crust, crushed lingonberries, pecan pie, walnut skins, shaved dark chocolate, hints of vanilla extract and, separately, a struck match in a distant room.

PALATE: Classic Westland 5-malt heft leads the way with cinnamon sticks and Mexican dark chocolate close behind, shaved almonds appear mid-palate before dehydrated apricots and gray pepper notes build as it transitions towards the finish.

FINISH: Moderate to long with lingering dark chocolate notes but note the soft oak spice, rich grain, and gentle, sweet earthiness.
