"Matt Hofmann at Westland has always shown great craft in marrying malt whiskey and wood, and here his streak continues. A combination of wool, brine, and wet earth fill the nose. Ginger cookie and creme brûlée come bounding forward to add an enchanting complexity. Buttered bread and ginger roll over the palate with a drier, campfire peat taking over. A delightfully rich offering to celebrate Peat Week."
