Westland Garryana 2018
For those that value a dram of Scotch like I do, you don't have to look outside our country to get that kind of quality or experience. Just south of Seattle sits one of the most decorated whiskey makers in the World -- Westland. I don't work there, just lucky enough to drive down there every couple weeks to see what they are pouring. Westland's master distiller got his degree in Scotland and uses the same principles and skill in making Westland whiskey, without some of the constraints applied to the Scottish whiskey makers. Westland is all about charting new territory in hopes of making their next great whiskey. I've probably tried 75 plus variations of their whiskey. This year's Garryana release is easily in my top five. Incredibly balanced and smooth. Goes down like a 20-year vintage, even though its' aged for less than six. Definitely worth the money.
