This Westport 21 Year Old is a blended malt from That Boutique-y Whisky Company. Westport is a teaspooned malt, and a particularly well-aged blended malt at 21 years of age. This first batch of Westport is a release of 330 bottles and is a vatting of two sherry butts from October 1997. Some blended malt if we don’t say so ourselves.
Expect to be won over immediately by a beautifully complex nose. Throwing the first punches are stewed apple, plums, orange peel, chocolate, and a little hint of herbs. The palate continues this full-bodied nature, with hints of mango, passionfruit, with fresh and dried fruits. The finish is long, decadent, and gives candied hints of the sherried cask history. A crowd-pleaser.
