Tasting Notes

Our second exclusive single barrel selection from this stellar Aussie distiller was aged in an ex Red Wine barrique from the Barossa Valley before being finished in a new charred American Oak Hogshead prior to bottling at a natural cask strength of 55.7% abv. Distilled in January 2016 and bottled in June 2020, this is one of the older whiskies from Starward we've seen to date and the bit of extra time and secondary aging really shows in the finished whisky. On last tasting we found notes of honey nut cake, dates, molasses, apples, caramel and spices with a finish of toasted oak and a pop of tannins.
