Palate Pancakes with honey, icing sugar and fresh red fruits. A few more raisins for good measure.

Reviews for Westland Sherry Wood
Not Worth the $80 Price Tag
I love a good sherry-finished single malt and was excited to see an American version, but this is incredibly disappointing. Not smooth, lack of character, and limited sherry impact. I really wanted this to be better. Definitely not worth the $80 price tag. I really think they need to age this longer to create better character.

Delicious if you like sherry finish
Gave it a go as I love a sherry finish (though have only previously tasted Scotch rather than American single malt) as I saw the World Whisky awards Westland has one recently. It is pricey but a good level of sweetness combined with a 50% abv. "pancakes with honey" sums it up nicely, though I would throw maple syrup into the mix too

Very heavily sherried -- strong sulfur after-taste.
Went a bit heavy with the sherry. I get a very strong sulfur after taste. Honestly disappointed with how expensive this bottle was vs something like Stranahan's.

I've heard better things about Westland's other releases. Skip this one.

Raisin de Etre
I was handed this dram in the US and it was glorious, quite focused on cocoa, chocolate and malt.
After purchasing, this tastes a lot like a modestly successful sherry finish. Too much raisin and insufficient malt character.
