Part of the new Outpost Range from Westland, Solum is a fresh American single malt from the Seattle-based brand, featuring Pacific Northwest peat. Let's dive in!
Sweet caramel on the nose, fresh popped popcorn, honey, a touch of char, melon and beef jerky — teriyaki, to be precise.
The palate is sweet and full of caramel, cream, pepper, ash, clove and hefty peat. Reminiscent of Laphroaig-style peat. Char-driven and luscious.
Long, all char, caramel, cocoa, espresso and ash.
This is lovely. It's the most "scotch-ish" peated expression from the U.S. that I've had, and that's a compliment from top to bottom. Lovely and worth checking out if previous American whiskey releases have left your peat itches unscratched.
