Westward Oregon Pinot Noir Cask Finish
American Single Malt

Westward Pinot Noir Cask Finish combines two things the northwest of the country is known for: single malt whiskey and pinot noir wine. The American single malt is fully matured before undergoing a 19-month finishing process using French oak casks. The casks held pinot noir from Suzor Wines, a noted producer in the Willamette Valley. The whiskey is bottled at 45% ABV.

"The nose offers cocoa powder-dusted truffles intermingling with a lineup of berries: raspberries, blueberries and lingonberries among them. The palate showcases dried apricots, figs and cashews together in a trail mix with chocolate chips. The finish showcases ginger snap cookies and Christmas spice, with medicinal notes, and jam on burnt toast."
