The nose is a real fruit bomb. We smell blackberries, grapes and a lot of dried fruit and dates. The nose develops into a combination of walnut and toasted marshmallow. We think of freshly toasted brown bread.


The malt starts off with great viscosity and oiliness. There are sweet notes of molasses and oatmeal. Then the palate changes to cinnamon, chocolate and an earthy nuttiness with walnut, hazelnut and roasted almonds. Despite the use of unpeated malt, there is a hint of smoke.


The finish is medium long and sparkling. There is a slight saltiness and a good amount of dark fruit. Probably due to its young age, the oak note is barely perceptible.


The Westfalian is a regional product of the highest quality. Real experts are at work here. Cask 121 offers an unexpected combination of great classic flavours. Unfortunately, the regionality and low volume are reflected in the price.

Rating: 84/100 - Excellent (Marcel: 83 | Sascha: 85)
