That’s right, two years. All Westlands I could try so far have been wonderful. I won’t tell you about the mash bill, it’s a little complicated. This is whiskey for geeks!
Colour: full gold.
Nose: amazing. I get the best blue mountain coffee (and I’m not making this up, honest), roasted nuts, the blackest chocolate, and a very unusual smokiness. Perhaps a working Italian coffee machine? Behind that, some delicate touches of wild flowers (daffodils?) and gentian.
Mouth: impeccable. I hate it that some two-years-old whiskey can be this good. Same feeling of roasted coffee beans, satay sauce, roasted malt, dark toffee… And yeah, I swear to Vishnu, blue mountain coffee.
Finish: long, extremely chocolaty. Chocolate liqueur and, yep, blue mountain coffee. Serious!
Comments: amazing Westland, I liked this larger batch better than their ‘cask 50’ that was heavily charred as well. I’m so glad I’ve got several others yet to taste! No, honest, blue mountain coffee!
