Description

Founded in 2008 as a new wave distiller out of Melbourne.  And it got bigger and bigger until global drinks giant, Diageo, took noticed and pumped some cash into it. It’s original founder, Mr David Vitale, now lives in the US selling his Aussie malt to the Americans.

Fine work, Mr V.

Here we have a little piece of Starward history, as i looks like it was released around 2016, three years after their first single malt.

Back then, Aussie wine cask matured malts were radical.  Not now.

From CocktailsAndBars, “Starward Wine Cask Edition 1 (41% ABV) is matured in 100% Barossa Shiraz casks shipped directly from the winery. The whisky is aged typically in 100 litre, 200 litre and some 300 litre re-coopered wine barrels between 2 years and 1 day up to 2.5 years, a little less that the sherry matured Starward. The spirit mellows with the wood influence a little faster in wine casks than sherry butts.

For the tasting notes, Starward Wine Cask Edition 1 is bright copper in colour with aromas of raisins, toffee and nougat with only a hint of bananas. The palate abounds with red fruit, plums, some spice and cinnamon and finishes long and dry with fine tannins. A most delicious whisky expression from Starward, and one that is easy to sip neat at any time of the night or enjoy with a cheese platter and dark chocolate”.
