The seventh release in our Cask Exchange series comes from a partnership with Bellwether Brewing in Spokane, WA. Bellwether is a far-flung brewery with far-flung style. This bottling honors that style by marrying whiskey from four casks that Bellwether used to age a panoply of old-school beer styles. Three of the four casks vatted for this finish started with our signature 5-malt mash matured in ex-Bourbon casks, which is an unsual combination for us here at Westland (this spirit generally being reserved for new oak). When aged in ex-Bourbon, 5-malt can express an over-savory character but these herbal and frankincentivized beers from Bellwether served as perfect ballast for that savory abyss.
Bellwether sent us back four casks that they used to age four different beers (and then some).
1. Fermented Wildflower Honey Followed by a Clean
Abbey Ale with Frankincense Resin Addition
