A rich and chocolatey American Single Malt Whiskey in a collector’s edition bottle.

Anchor Brewery was founded in 1896 in San Francisco — surviving the 1906 earthquake, Prohibition era, and several ownership changes. But in 1965 it needed saving once again. Fritz Maytag stepped up to re-create their iconic Anchor Steam beer and, in so doing, is credited with launching the micro-brewery revolution. Fritz did not stop there. In 1993 he launched Anchor Distillery, which quickly expanded to a full line of unique spirits. Fritz sold the business to a pair of seasoned industry veterans and today Anchor produces, imports, and distributes nearly 400 spirits, including their award-winning Westland line of Whiskies.

Westland was one of the pioneers of Single Malt Whiskey made in America. They are celebrating this award-winning signature achievement with a special, signed edition. Our sources tell us that only 200 bottles will be hand-signed by Master Distiller Matt Hofmann. In case you need a reminder, Westland’s American Oak Single Malt Whiskey combines five different malted barleys fermented with Belgian brewer’s yeast. Then it’s aged a minimum of two years in new American oak barrels and bottled at a perfect 46% ABV. And that’s the real secret here — they bring a brewer's detailed attention to the grains and yeast on the front end and master distilling craftsmanship on the back end.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Medium Amber.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Lemon and orange custard, backed by a fresh smell of a waffle cone, continued by the creaminess of the creme brûlée, chocolate custard and finally with a hint of jasmine hiding just beneath the surface.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Very smooth and interesting combination of Swiss chocolate, Turkish coffee and rich fruit notes.

Long and complex.
Ratings & Reviews
The best American single malt I’ve ever tasted.
Has an initial musty sweet scent with a hint of toasted nuts. Initial tasting notes are spice and oak from the barrel. Finish is slightly smokey with some caramel. Add some water and the spice dies down a bit, but barrel flavor remains, while the caramel pops a bit more. I didn't get the coffee flavor a lot of people have pulled from it.
Great version of malt whisky. If you brewed this in Scotland it would be near the top.
Nice Whiskey. The upfront came on strong initially with some unexpected hints of smoke but smoothed out the more I got into the glass. It had to be pretty good as I took this to a party and left the empty bottle.
Really good. Jasmine up front. Chocolate and bananas on the finish.
