I'm generally not a fan of gift sets, gift packaging, or any sort of holiday-oriented VAP pack that results in a bulky, oversized product that takes up too much shelf space and is a pain in the ass to ship. Call me old fashioned or practical. In cases where a producer has three products, however, all of which are fantastic, I am a big believer in the 200ml three pack and will make an exception in the store for these scenarios. St. George is a great example of this phenomenon. They have three delicious gins and choosing one is sometimes difficult for curious customers. Why not then buy the three pack and experiment with each one? We sell those St. George three packs like they're made out of crack cocaine because people love having little samples of multiple products. Now Westland is joining the fold and the timing couldn't have been better.
I've been telling people about Westland's whiskey for years now, but most guys don't want to blow $60-$70 to try a full bottle from each of the three mainstay expressions. Now for the low price of $59.99 you can try the American single malt, the peated edition, and the sherry aged whiskey in one fantastic set. With the Garryana release set for later this month, I'm expecting renewed interest in the distillery and this is a great way to indoctrinate new whiskey fans into the fold. The bad news is we can't ship them, so they're only for local customers. The good news is they're on the shelf right now!
