Westland Colere Edition 2 Single Malt Whiskey
The second edition of Colere continues Westland's exploration of new varieties of barley, bred outside the commodity system with flavor first in mind (not just yield). Colere Edition 2 is a limited annual bottling made with Talisman, a 2-row winter variety descended from the irrepressible Maris Otter and matured in only used casks for 5 years to relegate the oak influence to a supporting role and focus the attention on the grain itself.
On the nose there is dried lemon peel, vanilla frosting, and fresh raspberry. On the palate, light brown sugar, dark chocolate orange, and mixed berry filling. Bottled at 50% abv.
