Lost Lantern 2022 Single Cask #2: Westward Oregon Single Malt Whiskey Finished In A Chardonnay Cask
2022 Single Cask #2: Westward Oregon Single Malt Finished in a Chardonnay Cask
We hand-selected this cask from Westward Whiskey in Portland, Oregon. Westward has pushed the boundaries of craft spirits for almost two decades. With a deep commitment to creativity, innovation, and collaboration, Westward has created a new style of American single malt built on the brewing culture of the Pacific Northwest.
This Oregon single malt was made from 100% two-row malted barley grown in the pacific northwest. It was aged for 28 months in a new oak cask, then finished for 20 months in an Oregon Chardonnay cask. Like most Westward whiskies, the influence of the Westwardteam’s brewing experience is very evident on this cask, and this has a big, malty flavor. It has a structured and well-rounded palate, with hints of white flowers, toasted pecans, and fresh pears. It reminds us of a meadow in the first days of fall.
