Westland Sherry Wood
While the practice of maturing whiskey in sherry casks isn’t as long-standing as peated whiskies, it has become a standard of old world sensibilities. We celebrate this custom by filling hogsheads and butts sourced from the same region the Scottish find their casks. But what we do with them differs. Again, our five-malt spirit plays a significant role, allowing us to balance the sherry influence with our local malted barley flavor. We have our sherry casks shipped whole, which is unusual in the business of whiskey. This provides a sherry character that is still incredibly vibrant in this whiskey, but we always ensure the barley notes have an equal voice, something rarely done in Scotland.
