  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Special and certainly worth your while, although 80 EUR for a bottle is quite expensive. But if you can try it at a festival, go for it. Lovely stuff.
    • Nose
      Well, the nose is very promising. I get mostly coffee and chocolate, some vanilla and baked banana. Not much more, but that’s ok, for this is already quite pleasant.
    • Taste
      It is wonderfully soft on the palate. Very sweet on vanilla and banana, but with a weird twist. I am thinking burnt almonds. Something candy-like kicks in: Haribo bears. And some mild spices that I cannot quite put my finger on. Interesting.
    • Finish
      The finish is rather short on mocha and coffee.

    A real treat for a Whiskey ?? so young.
    • Nose
      Candied fruits, banana, vanilla, chocolate ... there is something bourbonesque. Behind there are some floral notes.
    • Taste
      In the continuity of the nose, very round, very oily, there is chocolate, vanilla, coffee and some very light spices, some cooked fruits and caramel.
    • Finish
      Long and very pastry on Vanilla, Chocolate and Coffee. There is even some caramel.

    Westland 24 mo (46%, OB, single malt, heavy char new American oak, 6822 bottles, June 2014)   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! SGP:352 - 88 points. -Serge Valentin

    • Nose
      I get chocolate, vanilla and coffee on the nose.
    • Taste
      Vanilla crème and almonds on the palate definitely a young malt.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium in length and leaves you with sweet mocha.
