American Single Malt may be a relatively recent category of whiskey but it already has a devoted fan base. Single Malt Whisky follows in the footsteps of the regulations of Scotland, where the whisky must be 100% malted barley produced at a single distillery.
Last year, Westward Whiskey won 4 gold medals for their American Single Malt Whiskey (45%), Oregon Stout cask finish (45%), and their two rum cask finish expressions (45%) & (65%) at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
This year, the distillery has launched such varied expressions as a cask-strength pinot noir finish and the world first sourdough whiskey.
So if you’ve drunk the single malt (or are thinking of doing so), maybe now’s the time to find out a little more about the man behind it. So grab yourself an Old Fashioned and settle in, while Miles Monroe answers our 26 questions.
