Westland Colere (1st Edition), 50%

Price: $150 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: David Fleming

Candied strawberries, dried flowers, and light nuttiness on the nose. The palate features semi-sweet chocolate, espresso beans, spice cake, cantaloupe slices, coffee ice cream, and a malty note. The finish offers good length and exudes notes of dried red berries, spice, bitter chocolate, cocoa powder, and light influences of roasted grain, oak, and tobacco leaf. The latter notes meld with the sweetness and spice, creating a complex, alluring balance.
