Flaviar, Westward and Suzor Wines have partnered to create a custom Single Malt blend finished in Pinot Noir Wine casks for a light, fruity, and herbaceous experience. 

Westward Whiskey Distillery was founded by Christian Krogstad, who graduated from the Siebel Institute of Technology — America’s oldest brewing academy. He worked at craft breweries and a vineyard before founding what would become Westward in 2004 to bring his vision for an American Single Malt to life. The Westward team was expanded in 2011 when Thomas Mooney joined as co-founder and CEO, accelerating growth and bringing that vision to a wider audience. Today, this Oregon distillery produces signature Spirit brands including Krogstad Aquavit, Volstead Vodka, Casa Magdalena Rum, and Westward Whiskey. 

Westward has a Pinot cask-finished Spirit in their core lineup, but this one was made especially for us and it has a lighter, more herbaceous flavor profile. Westward partnered with us and their favorite Oregon Wine-makers — Greg McCLellan and Melissa Rondeau of Suzor Wines — to make just 745 bottles of this special Flaviar edition Westward American Single Malt Pinot Noir Cask Finish.

It starts with Westward's Single Malt made from 100% local two-row barley fermented using American Ale yeast. It’s double pot distilled and barreled in #3 char new American oak casks. Then it was aged for four years and three months before being moved to two French oak casks used to mellow Suzor’s famous Pinot Noir, where it sat for two more years. Finally, the nectar was bottled at a lovely 45% ABV.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.

I ordered this because I recently went wine tasting in the Willamwtte Valley and it sounded interesting but I must say I was VERY pleasantly surprised and would highly recommend! Well done!

Love this unique expression of Westward! This is a one of a kind bottling and once it is sold out, it will never be available again so I highly suggest you grab your bottle now. IT's a great gift for the holidays!
 
Jesse
Jesse,
I enjoy the flavor, but for some reason I find this one a bit harsh. I much preferred the standard Westward Single Malt. This is still good, just not my favorite from that label.
 
James
James,
Very nice and unique whiskey. The pinot barrel definitely adds a nice fruitiness to the standard Westward, which I also enjoyed (and discovered via Flaviar). Very smooth finish. I liked it enough to order a 2nd bottle since I reckon this one won't be around long.
 
Sean
Sean,
This is absolutely delicious. Lighter in the malt than their standard release but heavier in the dark fruits. The hay must is tampered down as well, and its nearly sickly sweet in all the right ways. Two years finishing in the pinot noir casks is the perfect amount of time for this to pick up all the right wine notes and marry the flavors with the OG juice. If you like the standard westward do yourself a favor and upgrade in flavor to this bottle while you can, because damn is it hard to hunt a bottle of this down.
