The American Malt Rises.

There's a street in Oregon where distilleries grow, and it's aptly named Distillery Row. Among them there's House Spirits Distillery founded by one Christian Krogstad, an expert in craft beverages (from beer to wine to Whiskey). His magic shop is situated in a warehouse near the source of clean and crisp water from the Bull Run Watershed. He started making Whiskeys in 2004 and since then, he created an imaginative new kind of Whiskey: still hooked to tradition, but with a modern twist, capturing the terroir of the NW.

Westward Whiskey is an original American Single Malt twice-distilled in copper pot stills (that don't allow mistakes) and aged in new American Oak from the Ozarks (charred with a No. 2 char) for at least two years. The entire mash is locally-sourced, two-row malted barley and it is never chill-filtered.

House Spirits is a pretty big player in Oregon and it's no coincidence this bottle tastes amazing. Its aroma starts with sweet malt and a hint of honey and nuts. The flavor of barley and sweet malt is unrestrained and cooperates with lovely barrel spices nicely. Westward Single Malt is a quirky cat, since it's fermented like an Ale and aged like Bourbon. And if you're up for pairing, have a glass of ale beer while sipping this treat.

Daniel
Daniel,
Delicious. Great flavors, very complex.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Goes down nice and smooth, slight dry aftertaste.
 
Alex
Alex,
To quote my wife, “Fireball without the sugar.” An excellent surprise! The forward cinnamon and barley, complemented by the vanilla, give this a wonderful, not overpowering, and incredibly smooth profile
 
Bruce
Bruce,
Smooth with a touch of spice and a strong Oak undercurrent.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Strong barley taste and hint of chocolate on the backend. Has an overall unique flavor like a stronge ale.
 
Galynne
Galynne,
A new whiskey to add to my favorites! Smooth
 
Matthew
Matthew,
A bit steep of a price for an awfully muted flavor with an overly malty finish.
 
Bret
Bret,
My favorite of the trio in sampler! Will be adding it to the rotation.

Mr.,
Lovely vanilla nose. Mild, smooth flavor, and a medium finish with rich notes of chocolate. Subtle and complex, nothing overwhelms
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, balanced, American Single Malt Whiskey with a bold birth; while a full & rich life that leads to a long & dry death.

Wow, spicy and smooth. This is a complex whiskey with a smooth finish.

Chad
Chad,
What a flavorful whiskey! From the moment you bring it to your nose until it vanishes down your throat, this whiskey has a sweet and complex array of flavors . I detected vanilla from the start that morphs into spice and apples at the end. For such a young whiskey it has the experience of a much more expensive bottle!
 
Bobby
Bobby,
Yummy. Flavorful without being effete
 
Greg
Greg,
I guess I'm the odd man out on this scotch. It smells and tastes like beer. The malted barley leaps out at your nose and it's all I could taste. I don't care for beer at all and was dismayed to taste it in my scotch! Leave it to the Americans to beerify their scotch!!

Smooth and amazing!
 
Robert
Robert,
There was a distinct difference in flavor between the sample I received and the bottle I purchased. I'm not sure why that was; but the sample was better. I would've given it an 8/10.

It’s not my thing. Upfront flavors just didn’t do it for me.

guest,
I enjoyed this whiskey from the time the bottle was opened. It was smooth and flavorful and if I can find a place in Texas that sell it I will definitely repeat. There are few whiskeys I go to twice as I enjoy the experience of trying new crafts but this is a winner for me. Thanks John Lynch

Paul
Paul,
Very nice American Single Malt. I'm a big Scotch fan and normally find many American whiskeys a bit one dimensional. This one is very nice. Complex and very drinkable.
 
Alex
Alex,
Definitely taste the malted barley very clearly. Not much smoke to speak of initially, but has an interesting charred aftertaste to it. Slightly spicy in a bourbon-like way. Overall very good.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Smooth, almost buttery finish. Definitely a spicy note. Great on its own.
 
Ross
Ross,
Spicy, sweet, cinnamon, light hint of vanilla on the nose. The same on the palate, with dark, spicy fruits near the end. Long finish.....very sweet, with a little cinnamon, then heavy maple syrup. I tasted all 3 samples neat only....the more they sat, the sweeter they became. This was my 2nd place choice of the 3.
 
Brian
Brian,
Much different than I expected. Definitely had a spicy little touch to it, but went down smooth.
 
Mike
Mike,
Smooth, perhaps a little sweet, but a gorgeous vanilla finish and lingering wafts of coconut. Excellent.

well balanced and smooth
 
Greg
Greg,
The flavor spiral seemed on target with spice and malt up front. Dried fruit is more in the nose. And the dry grain is the definite finish. Enjoyed the tasting. Probably won’t buy it. Of the three samples, in the middle but nothing especially memorable. Price point seems high. Full disclosure: I’m a Scotch drinker with a fondness for peat. Also enjoy good rye.
 
Matt
Matt,
Too much front and back end spice/fire

Long herbal fade accented with bits of orange peel, butterscotch, cocoa and lemon. Good sense of balance, medium body and a soft feel that fades out dry and chalky.
