The Scotch Library at The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa provides both aficionados and those new to Scotch with the opportunity to select from more than 300 different labels. The impressive collection, one of the largest in the state, features more than 175 single malts and 30 blends imported from all six whisky regions of Scotland (Speyside, Highland, Islay, Islands, Lowland and Campbeltown) representing nearly half of the distilleries in Scotland today. Vintages in the Scotch Library range from 10-year old Scotch to Scotch that is more than 40 years old.

As a part of its robust Scotch program, the Resort hosts Friday evening tastings as well as Master Tastings at which imbibers will enjoy a fun and informative evening sampling Scotch whiskies in hour-long presentations led by Scotch experts. The Scotch Library Master Tastings each begin at 6:30 p.m. and are priced at $65 per person (excluding tax and gratuity).
