Westward Oregon Single Malt Port Finish
Any Port-O in a Storm-O
This was bottled as a private barrel for R/Bourbon Selections.
We hand-selected this cask from Westward Whiskey in Portland, Oregon. Westward has pushed the boundaries of craft spirits for almost two decades. With a deep commitment to creativity, innovation, and collaboration, Westward has created a new style of American Single Malt built on the brewing culture of the pacific northwest.
This single malt whiskey was aged for 4 years in new American oak, then finished for 1 year in a port cask. This adds rich fruit flavors of roasted plums, peach cobbler, and blackberry to a malty body. It is like picking the very last flowers of autumn as the sun sets.
