Westland Sherry Wood Single Malt, 46%

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

Sweet vanilla, dried berries, and a soft display of woodsmoke introduce this whiskey. While notably improved from earlier bottlings, the sherry is still rendered a bit dull, like chocolate-covered cherries, as smoky cocoa nibs and the chewy malt meet on the palate, offering a honeyed finish with hints of baking chocolate.
