Following an outstanding response to 2019’s exclusive release Westward and The Whisky Club are excited to present: The Single Barrel Selection of Westward Whiskey Pinot Noir Finish at Cask Strength.

With an ABV of 62.5, this whiskey is bottled straight from the barrel, reflecting the robust flavours built in every step of Westward’s long, slow process.

The Single Barrel Selection of Westward Whiskey Pinot Noir Finish at Cask Strength is made from scratch at their Portland distillery using Pacific Northwest two-row barley, brewed with American pale ale yeast for outstanding flavour, double pot distilled for exceptional character, and matured in 2-char, kiln-dried 53-gallon lightly charred new American oak barrels. Once fully matured, the batch is finished for 19 months in French Oak wine casks that had previously held Pinot Noir from Dominio IV Wines.

Created in partnership with Dominio IV Wines, a renowned family-grown producer from the Willamette Valley – Oregon’s esteemed winemaking region – the Single Barrel Selection of Westward Whiskey Pinot Noir Finish at Cask Strength is bound to sell out to The Whisky Club members who will be the only people in the world able to taste these four single barrel expressions.
