Westward Whiskey American Two Malts Bridgeport Brewing Co was released as part of Westward’s Whiskey Club and was a small release consisting of only 1772 bottles. The company’s club is a direct-to-consumer national whiskey club that in part affords members access to four quarterly releases. For Two Malts, the company states that this was “Westward’s first-ever collaboration in which their team of distillers turned an iconic brewery’s recipe into one of their whiskeys.” The whiskey was brewed in conjunction with the Bridgeport team using their Kingpin Red Ale recipe.

The intent of this whiskey was to mimic Bridgeport’s Kingpin Red Ale recipe, and boy did Westward hit the mark. Malt and rye make a clear impact in every aspect of the sip, however, hints of ale are ever present throughout. If you didn’t know the backstory of this malted whiskey, you wouldn’t be faulted for thinking that it was finished in an ale cask. Full of flavor throughout, this whiskey will please anyone who enjoys ale inspired whiskeys or just malted whiskeys in general.

The bottle being reviewed is number 1506.
