Westland // Washington, USA
This release is the first for Westland Distillery's Cask Exchange Release series. For this bottling, the brand sent whiskey barrels to the Kulshan Brewing Co. in Bellingham, Wa. The brewery aged a Russian Imperial Stout and sent the used barrels back to Westland to age this whiskey. The American single malt whiskey was made from five different barley malts. Then it aged for a minimum of 53 months in the ex-stout barrels and Cooper's Reserve new American oak. Only 176 bottles were produced.
