Westward Whisky launches Cask Strength American single malt


Westward Whiskey has introduced the barrel strength version of its original American Single Malt, Westward Cask Strength. 

As the brand’s fourth permanent expression, Australians can now experience Westward straight from the cask alongside Westward American Single Malt, Westward American Single Malt Stout Cask and Westward American Single Malt Pinot Noir Cask – the brands other flagship whiskeys. 

Westward’s Cask Strength has already earned recognition as the highest-rated American Single Malt with a double gold award at the San Francisco Spirits Competition, the industry’s most prestigious awards judging.  

This whiskey best reflects the skills of Westward’s talented team of brewers-turned-distillers and the beauty and bounty of the American northwest. Cask Strength accentuates the region’s rich, locally malted barley, the flavourful beer created in-house with classic ale yeast, and the newly charred American Oak barrels matured in Oregon. 

“We’re thrilled to be expanding our flagship portfolio of whiskeys as we continually reimagine what single malts can be,” Westward Whiskey founder and CEO Thomas Mooney said. 

“We first introduced Cask Strength at the demand of our local Oregon fans, and since then there has been huge interest from whiskey lovers both locally and globally for quality high proof options, so we’re looking forward to having Australians be able to try our Cask Strength.” 

Westward American Single Malt Whiskey Cask Strength reflects toasted almond, graham cracker and black pepper aromas. Flavours include sesame, tobacco leaf and cacao, with a honeyed, deep fiery malt finish. 

Cask Strength is available for purchase from Cambridge Cellars and Boozebud for RRP $199.
