The fourth in Westland's Native Oak Series, Garryana 4|1 once again features whiskey aged in Quercus garryana (Garry oak), an oak native to the Pacific Northwest. Although other traditional barrels are used to age this American single malt including ex-rye and ex-bourbon, the focus is on Garry oak and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. Bottled at 100 proof.
Westland Distillery does a great job of reflecting a certain Pacific Northwest character in their malts. Brooding notes of dark malt and wood char give way to to lighter briny/ green olive/ peppermint aromas on the nose. The palate is muscular and savory. Dark bread and black pepper linger long afterwards and bristle at the sides of the tongue.
