The Westfalian Cask 134

Mellow, Sweet Fruity
The Westfalian stands for unique bottlings and is not afraid to experiment. Cask 134 is subtitled "Crazy Cask Experiment". A single corn whisky - distilled from maize (corn for you US folks) - matured in an ex-Old Pulteney sherry cask. You don't often find this combination in Scotland nor in the USA.

The first thing that comes to mind is "Herrencreme" (the delicious vanilla dessert with rum). This is accompanied by the sweet scent of grape and nut chocolate with a good portion of caramel. Behind this we find the clear, cereal-like scent of corn and oats.


On the tip of the tongue, this Westfalian is a real sugar bomb. We taste honey, cream toffee and butter biscuits. Accompanied by a wonderful viscosity and a surprising dryness. On the palate, chocolate and nut flavours unfold.


This single corn lingers surprisingly long. An interesting spiciness is left on the palate. Although there are no pronounced oak notes, the bitter-sweet blend of maize and chocolate persists.


Once again, The Westfalian excels. This multi-faceted Whisky is bound to take you on a flavor journey. That being said, it is a quite unique spirit and definitely not a Single Malt. Which, in all honesty, might not be to the liking of everybody.

Rating: 83/100 - Excellent (Marcel: 82 | Sascha: 84)
