Westland Peated Single Malt, 46%

Price: $80 Issue: Fall 2017 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Briney sea air, wet stones, and pretty wisps of campfire smoke give this a strong Scottish bent, while the medium-bodied palate nicely balances the sweet malt, salt, and smoke in a bit of salt water taffy. Showing nice complexity and balance overall, the finish smolders and evolves to become more herbaceous.
