Top Malt from Down Under.

Melbourne is famous for its insane weather, where all four seasons present themselves in one day like it’s a demo. But while such changes may be obnoxious to people, they’re perfect for maturing booze. David Vitale, Melbourne native, established the Starward Distillery in 2016. He sources his barley from the nearby farms, while the maturation casks come from vineyards in Victoria. Starward’s Whisky spends two years only in red wine casks, but the crazy climate accelerates the process in ‘Melbourne years’. Their Spirits are unique and unmistakably Aussie.

Starward Nova Malt Whisky is a lush vision of Whisky can become. Australia, its hot climate and legendary red wines are carved in the DNA of this Spirit. The creators had carefully selected barrels that used to house locally made Shiraz, Cabernet and Pinot. They made sure the barrels weren't charred. That way they preserved both the character of wine and oak. The big idea behind this dram is honoring the tradition while not being trapped by it. Innovation and creativity enabled this red renegade to be as palatial as the big boys, despite its young age.

Extremely smooth going in and going out. My favorite bottle as if today
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Smooth smoky complexity with a really nice lingering finish. I'm no expert, but of all the whisky I've ever tasted, the best by far.
 
Adam
Adam,
Very nice, everyday drinker. It has a bit of heat and then mellows our nicely. Not super complex. I’ve gone through my first bottle quickly!
 
Marie
Marie,
A very excellent single malt whiskey. Had it been brewed in the Southern USA; it would be a perfect bourbon!
 
ROBERT
ROBERT,
Nice and smooth with just a hint of fruitiness from the wine barrels without being overpowered by it like you get from some of the sherry barrel aged whiskies.
 
Caio
Caio,
Even tho this bottle is extremely young, it has a deep flavor profile. Straight from the barrel
 
Bruce
Bruce,
Fruity and complex without being overbearing. Smooth and easy drinking. You could get in trouble as this one goes down easy!
 
Michael
Michael,
What a surprise that a 2 year old, single malt, is so smooth and smoky. I love it.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Didn't know what to expect with the wine Barrel aging but was pleasantly surprised. The barrel imparted a nice fruitiness to the Whiskey but did not overpower it. A very nice dram!!
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Never had a red wine finish before. Easy drinking, great color, enjoyable for such a young whisky.
