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.

Anchor launched their Westland Single Malt Whiskey line several years ago. Their newest entry is Westland Single Malt Sherry Finish. But that doesn’t tell the whole tale because there's a lot unique about this set up. The first is that the term “single malt” means all distilled in one place. This Whiskey actually has five different kinds of barley in the malt mix. It uses four different barrel types — ex-Bourbon, two kinds of Sherry, and virgin new. And — being brewers — they ferment the mash with Belgian Brewer’s Yeast. And it all works.

I would put Westland Sherry Wood Single Malt whiskey against a young Macallan any day. I have the luxury of living within an hour drive from the distillery and they are churning out some amazing offerings. The Sherry Wood is a great example of what an American distillery can do.
Nuanced smoky sipper with what I look for in an enjoyable whiskey.
Nice opening notes from this whiskey; Nose is nice, and finish is long. Not a bad bottle, little pricey in my opinion.
Excellent American single malt. It's Seattle. Bold, smoky, velvety chocolate, a bright fiery finish. Nose is equally enticing and nuanced.
