The nose says gentle and light: banana cream pie, Nilla wafer, lemon custard, bubble gum, pineapple soda, blanched almonds, white flowers, pistachio, and graham cracker crust. But the palate is rich and robust, with nuts, tobacco, mocha, gingerbread, and vibrant spice to counter the banana, almond, and vanilla-chocolate shake sweetness. The finish is short but satisfying, with spiced pecans, cigar, semi-sweet chocolate, and mocha. (SSB, Winter 2019)
The new expression of Garryana, Westland Distillery's unique whiskey that's partly aged in oak casks made from native Pacific Northwest Garry oak, is finally here. This year's expression is a melange of multiple cask types and ages. The current blend looks like this: rye barrel (29%), bourbon (29%), first fill Garryana (19%), PX sherry hogshead (16%), refill Garryana (7%). Each barrel was aged at least 44 and up to 75 months. The production run yielded only 3,750 bottles at 100 proof so less than 20 barrels work of whisky in this tiny batch. There's no question that the Garryana is the most exciting American single malt release every year, offering incredible depth and finesse, while delivering on the promise to offer something no one else can. Westland have done their homework and their products speak for themselves, but it's the Garryana that pushes them over the top to truly compete with some of the world's top whisky. It may not be the oldest thing out there, but it will go toe-to-toe with anything from anywhere and come out swinging. As always, the 4.1 is hyper limited and we don't expect to get more than one or two drops of a few bottles this year.
