Whisky Reviews for Westland Peated

- Tasty whiskey, but too expensive.
- Tasted on January 13, 2017. Had expected to be blown away by a hurricane of peat. If I had blindly tasted him I would certainly not have given him the qualification peated. Prima whiskey, but not so distinctive and too expensive.
Aroma is not very strong. Raspberry, pink. Deep underneath dark purple cherry, citrus and some peat, but less than the "peated" variant suggests.
Not very impressed. It all stays pretty flat, I think. Soft mouth feel , which becomes drier from oily speed. Taste red fruit: cherry, plum, raspberry; if he does, he pulls something bitter.
Quite short. Burns some after. Dry.
- Impressive... I mean, what more can you say of an ultra young whiskey that performs like this?
Wow, this is reminiscent of a more delicate Lagavulin 8 Year Old, which I find a big, big compliment. Soft fruity notes like banana and peaches, but also vanilla and marzipan, accompanied by a lovely brine-y quality. The smoke is very delicate. Really, really good.
Lovely, raw, naked spirit. Subtle fruits and soft peat. Colour me impressed. Banana is again at the forefront, but now more candy-esque. Some lemon rasp too. At bit of ash and some salt even. Balanced.
Lemon and ashes. Long.
