Starward Charred Red Wine Casks
We teamed up with Melbourne’s craft whisky legends for an all-new Starward made exclusively for Australia’s biggest community of whisky lovers...
Colour Ruby russet
Nose Sweet and fruity with strawberry jam and vanilla soaked berries layered with spicy oak
Palate Full, rich and intense with big fruit notes; strawberry jam, blackberries, sultanas and juicy red fruits, all perfectly balanced with tannins and a deep, toasty malt
Finish Long and malty with hints of dark chocolate and forest fruit
Food Match Venison sausages and fresh homemade tomato relish
The team at STARWARD put together a special whisky just for the Club, created with whisky from casks with a more traditional charring treatment. A combination of charred French oak barriques and American oak hogsheads were used, creating this big, intense single malt that takes Starward’s signature red wine cask to the next level. It’s a malty feast of strawberry jam, blackberries, sultanas, juicy red fruits, oak tannins and deep toast malt that will have you coming back for more. Oh, and it’s bottled at a cracking 48% ABV too. Thanks us later and enjoy!
