American Single Malt

Production:

Westward begins by brewing an artisanal American pale ale from scratch, using locally malted barley, ale yeast, and slow, low temperature fermentation. The ale is distilled twice in custom low-reflux copper pot stills that are designed to create a robust spirit, andtransform the fresh beer into whiskey. Westward is aged to perfection at a relatively low proof in new, lightly toasted American oak barrels.  Once aged to taste, the distilling team mingles fully-matured barrels in small batches to achieve the whiskey’s signature flavourprofile – balanced and bold, with just the right amount of spice and sweetness.

Tasting Notes:

Westward American Single Malt whiskey awards an elegantly robust and fruity aroma, with creamy vanilla and brown sugar notes. Entry to the palate shows baking spice, lush fruit, and sweet malt. The finish begins with tobacco, dark chocolate, and leather with a lingering oak sweetness that gives way to stone fruit.
