Located in Portland, Oregon, the state's cool wet winters has perhaps had a good deal of influence on Westward’s American Single Malt Whiskey. This easy-sipping whiskey is surprisingly delicate, presenting its flavors in a soft and friendly way. Its fascinating mix of orange/lemon against chocolate/herbal creates an intriguing interplay. Despite finishing with a splash of spice, this whiskey is quite elegant in its delivery, lending itself to coming across as more of a character on Downton Abbey versus John Wick. As strange as that comparison might be, it's an ample way of describing what Westward American Single Malt Whiskey has to offer. Mild mannered, stately, and of course, debonair, Westward may not feature high shock value, but time with it will make up for it.
