Starward Pedro Ximénez Cask

Created exclusively for the Club, we worked long and hard with the pioneer of PX in the Aussie whisky world bring our Members this delicious, jammy fruit-bomb of a whisky. It was worth the work.

Nose Orange zest with bright tropical fruits, banana pancake, dried apricot, sticky toffee & rich blackberries.

Palate Golden syrup and dried orange peel with buttered raisin toast, nutmeg, toasted oak and mocha.

Finish Rich and jammy, with caramel fudge, dried fruits and mulberry jam accompanied by cacao nibs.

Food Match Slow-cooked braised beef and creamy mash, and a cheeky bit of hazelnut milk chocolate for dessert.


The OG Aussie Sherry Bomb is back!

We toiled for years alongside the pioneer of Spanish PX casks in the Aussie whisky world to bring Members this delicious, fudgy fruit-bomb of a whisky. 

It was worth the work.

In 2011, Starward first laid some Australian whisky into proper Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks. When these first release New World Projects PX Casks pop up on the secondary market, they regularly go for around $800... 

This special collaboration was the third that we’ve created in our exclusive Starward Wood Cask series, and it’s not just us who are noticing the rise and rise of this Melbourne distillery. Starward are still basking in the glow of being named Most Awarded Distillery of the Year at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2022 — as well as having hauled in 12 x Double Gold and 3 x Gold medals at the SFWSC 2022, and have since brought home 12 x Double Golds and 10 x Golds at the 2023 Awards.

Starward’s signature red wine barrel maturation that everyone has come to know and love shows through with vanilla pod, blackberry and nutmeg, burnished with bright tropical fruit and wrapped in the sweet, chocolatey richness from the lengthy second maturation in Spanish PX casks. That’s followed with a big and juicy palate of mulberry jam and raisin toast backed up by fruitcake, caramel and cacao nib in this 48% ABV stunner.

The bottle proudly wears its freshly rebranded Starward styling, resplendent in an alluring golden-brown gradient that reflects the liquid’s jammy vibes.
