People might be skeptical of the Westward Oregon Malt Whiskey, at least those who are familiar with the process of making a good whiskey. While most whiskey is aged in an oak barrel for at least five years, this one is aged a mere two years. Yet instead of putting it a step or two behind more mature options, people are pleasantly surprised with how flavorful it actually is.
The Westward Oregon Malt Whiskey boasts a complex palette thanks to being double pot distilled. This gives the "unique drink many of the smooth characteristics you'd expect from an Irish whiskey," as noted by Uncrate. Made from 100% malted barley grown in the Pacific Northwest, the Westward Oregon Malt Whiskey must be sampled.
