Starward Cognac Single Cask

We’ve kept aside two single casks of our Double-Gold award-winning whisky for an extra-long maturation in the crème de la crème of spirits casks. Starward’s first-ever French Oak Cognac Single Cask, created only for Members of The Whisky Club.


Colour Chestnut auburn

Nose Juicy apple and poached pear, with sticky toffee and stewed fruit spice alongside rich French oak.

Palate Bright orange, blackberry jubes and chewy caramel, with dried apple and toasted almonds.

Finish Bold and syrupy. Fruit and nut mix with baked orchard fruits and milk chocolate.


Aussie whisky legends and 2022’s San Francisco World Spirits Competition Most Awarded Distillery of the Year, Starward, put its award-winning single malt in fresh Limousin Oak French Cognac casks, shipped directly from France — a distillery-first, made exclusively for Members.

It went on to clean up on the global stage, picking up Double Gold at the prestigious 2023 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Starward kept aside two exceptional single casks from that release and let them mature for an extra six months in the decadent French Limousin oak Cognac casks. All up, the Starward Cognac Single Cask has spent 18 months inside the world's most luxurious casks.

And it tastes divine — with big bold and juicy notes of bright orange, sticky toffee, poached pear, toasted almonds and chewy caramel that jump straight out of the glass.

Cask strength, non-chill filtered with natural colour, sipping on this as close as you can get to walking into Starward’s warehouse and drawing some of this decadent single malt straight from the cask.

With the distillery focusing on batch releases, a single cask is a rarity these days — and so is Starward at cask strength. With only two of these precious single casks, Members will lap us this lavish liquid in no time.

Starward Cognac Single Cask is made exclusively for Members of The Whisky Club and represents amazing value for an Australian Single Cask whisky finished in the world’s most prestigious spirit casks.
