    Whiskeyfun:
    Westland 3 yo 2011/2015 (55 %, OB, USA, single malt, Heavy char new American oak, cask #50, 173 bottles, 2015)   This baby was bottled in June last year. Grain bill and yeast were the same as above. Colour: amber. Nose: yessss… A Mars bar straight from the plant, a tri-pack of Lindt’s creamiest milk chocolate, a handful of Werther’s Originals, and the most natural vanillin… I mean, vanilla. BTW, isn’t it funny that the island where you find the best vanilla, now called La Réunion, used to be called the Bourbon Island? (l’Île Bourbon). That was the cultural minute. With water: caramel and fudge. Perhaps a notch simple. Mouth (neat): it’s some very good young bourbon, but there’s less ‘dumb’ coconut in this, and more chicory, cappuccino, and toasted brioche. It’s perhaps not the most complex whiskey ever, but everything’s at the right place. Easy and, in some ways, a tad ‘Japanese’ (very young ex-bourbon Yamazaki). With water: the oak comes out, that’s a little too much. Finish: medium. Very good when undiluted, but I think water let’s the tannins come out – a little too much. A little marmalade in the aftertaste. Comments: very fine, for sure, but perhaps a little too one-dimensional for my taste. Or too young. SGP:451 - 80 points.
