Westland Colere Edition 1 Single Malt Whiskey is a ground-breaking American single malt whiskey, matured in used casks to emphasize the unique character of the barley grain. It's a product of collaboration between Westland Distillery and Matt Brynildson, a renowned brewer from Fremont Brewing.  This whiskey is known for its complex flavor profile highlighting the barley and minimal oak influence.

Description

Nose

Roasted Pineapple: This is a prominent note, offering a tropical sweetness that’s unexpected in whiskey. It hints at the use of the Alba barley and its unique characteristics.

Floral Character: Delicate floral notes add complexity and balance to the sweetness of the pineapple. Imagine hints of lavender or elderflower.

Life Cereal and Grape Soda: These notes evoke a sense of nostalgia and playfulness. They suggest a touch of cereal grain sweetness and a hint of grape candy, adding a youthful vibrancy.

Cookie Dough and Roasted Almonds: These notes provide a grounding richness to the aroma. The cookie dough hints at vanilla and baking spices, while the roasted almonds add a touch of nuttiness and depth.

 

Palate

Pineapple: The pineapple flavor carries over from the nose, but it’s not overpowering. It provides a base of sweetness and tropical fruitiness.

Original Wheat Thins and Black Pepper: These savory notes add a surprising counterpoint to the sweetness. The Wheat Thins offer a toasty, bready character, while the black pepper adds a touch of warmth and spice.

Fig Bar and Gingerbread Cake: These notes add depth and complexity to the palate. The fig bar hints at dried fruit and a touch of caramel, while the gingerbread cake brings in warm baking spices and a hint of molasses.

Malt Character: The use of 100% malted barley shines through on the palate. Expect a grainy sweetness and a malty backbone that ties all the other flavors together.

 

Finish

Long and Warming: The finish is satisfying and lingers on the palate for a while.

Oak and Spice: While the oak influence is minimal, there are subtle hints of oak that add structure and a touch of dryness. The spice element could be perceived as white pepper or ginger, complementing the black pepper note from the palate.
