Member Reviews and Ratings of Westward American Single Malt Whiskey
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!
Yummy. Flavorful without being effete
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!
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.
not a fan.
Nice and smooth, great taste
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
My new go to whiskey
Very unique. Excellent finish.
Unique, easy to drink. Smoky and slightly spicy. Not my favorite.
Great, very different from what I usually find with single malts. The malt and grain in the finish is visible
Very smooth and flavorful
Really outstanding; smooth, great barley malt and Carmel/oak/vanilla flavor, some spice, really nice finish, sweet nose
Strong and smooth with a spicy finish. I liked it.
Smooth strong malt and vanilla with nice spicy finish
This is great
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.
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.
Smooth, almost buttery finish. Definitely a spicy note. Great on its own.
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.
Much different than I expected. Definitely had a spicy little touch to it, but went down smooth.
Smooth, perhaps a little sweet, but a gorgeous vanilla finish and lingering wafts of coconut. Excellent.
well balanced and smooth
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.
Too much front and back end spice/fire
Too spicy, rough finish. Didn't care for it.
Smooth, fruity and a nice finish.
Nice caramel notes, but too spicy for our pallet.
Good burn in the after.
really enjoyed the smooth and delicious taste,thumbs up whisky..
Really enjoyed the smooth and delicious taste, outstanding whisky
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.
Very smooth flavor and a delicious color. I enjoyed every sip.
