Westland Silver City Cask Exchange #3 Single Malt Whiskey

$94.50
Size
Westland’s Cask Exchange is a series of single malt whiskey bottlings driven by demand for casks by Washington brewers and other makers. Instead of selling these casks, Westland loans them to like-minded makers from the region. They offer no requirement for what type of beer or other product fills these casks - only for them to be returned after use. Beer finishes are far from novel, but this program isn't about being unique, it's about forging meaningful partnerships and making something together that couldn't have existed before.

A majority of the pre-finish spirit was 5-malt that followed a run of heavily peated. The peat precedent provides a delicate smoke thickly insulated by maltiness. This whiskey is a walk through a soupy malt fog—good luck finding your way out. Nose: Creamsicle, boiled wort, waffle cone, light smoke. Palate: Ovaltine, cooked apple, dry pine, ash.

Cask Exchange #3 was made in partnership with Silver City Brewery. 1,130 bottles were released, after 53 months of aging, bottled at 51.2% abv. Barley bill is 5-malt, Washington Select Pale Malt. Cask types were 4 Ex-Westland (Big Magnificent Bastard Scotch
Ale) and 1 Ex-Westland (Fat Woody Scotch Ale).
