Westland Lucky Envelope Cask Exchange 4
American Single Malt
Westland // Washington, USA
Westland Lucky Envelope Cask Exchange is the fourth release in the brand’s Cask Exchange program. Westland sends used whiskey barrels to a brewery and they in turn use them to age their beer before sending them back to the distillery. Lucky Envelope Brewery based in the Ballard neighborhood in Seattle was selected for this bottling with its Imperial Stout seasoning the barrels. Additionally, those casks once held malbec wine in its life cycle. The American single malt was a five-malt barley blend which ran through the still immediately after a peated spirit was run. Aged for 69 months, this is bottled at 102.6 proof. Sales limited to Washington State.
American Single MaltMade in the USA from 100% malted barley. Distilled at one distillery. Matured in oak casks no larger than 700L. Distilled to no higher than 160 proof (80% ABV). Bottled at 80 proof (40% ABV) or higher. (This is the proposed Standard of Identity by the American Single Malt Whiskey Commission.)
