A double-grain Whiskey aged in ex-Wine casks from Down Under.

David Vitale left the corporate training software market in 2007 to launch his vision for a uniquely Australian Whisky — New World Whisky Distillery in Melbourne. Shortly thereafter he developed his first brand to fulfill that vision, and he named that brand Starward. Early-stage funding for the project came from Diageo’s in-house funding division — Distill Ventures — and they were able to build their own production distillery in 2016 located in an old airplane hangar. And while Starward began as a producer of Malt Whisky, he has since expanded to a range of Whiskies and bottled cocktails that have taken Down Under by storm.

Technically, Starward Two-Fold Double Grain Whisky is hard to describe. Usually when you use the term “blended Whisky” it means a bunch of malt and grain Spirits assembled from several distillery sources. But really, this is a marriage of two Spirits from two distilleries — 40% Starward’s locally-sourced malted barley Spirit distilled in-house and 60% wheat distillate from Shoalhaven NSW distillery just south of Sydney. And since Melbourne sits in the heart of Australia’s Wine Country, the combined Spirit is aged in Red Wine casks.

Ratings & Reviews
Paul
Paul,
I found this to be a thoroughly delicious dram. The nose is wonderfully fruity. I found notes of apple and wood on the tongue. Quite a bargain at the price. Highly recommend.

Brad,
Smooth as a baby’s bottom. Unlike my teething 1 year old this whiskey doesn’t have much bite. Picked up some wine notes on the nose, much like when I get home and mommy has clearly had a hard day.
 
Scott
Scott,
Not up to the same standards as Starward's single malt, this has a nice sweetness without a strong bite.
 
Blake
Blake,
Nose before drinking: grapes, stone fruits Nose after drinking: vanilla wafers Taste: wheat bite, green earthiness (arugula, dandelion greens), sweet wine notes Finish: little to none, though the bite lingers after you swallow Very nice for a young whiskey, and decidedly different from the bourbons I usually stick to; while not complex due to its young age, the flavors are sweet and enjoyable for anyone who loves a good wine-finished whiskey

Dustin,
I was very excited to try this, and perhaps I got my hopes up too high, but I was a bit disappointed. Not my favorite when drunk neat, but definitely tastes great mixed. Not bad, just not as good as I'd hoped.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Great initial touch to the palette with a unique flavor profile that stays up front while the back end is super smooth.
 
Philip
Philip,
Silky smooth on tongue. Truly unique. Smell of Caramel, vanilla ice cream, and sherry. flavors of red wine, chocolate, butterscotch, cream, and mint. Hot cocoa! I’ll definitely buy more and keep on hand.

Cliff,
When I first received and sampled my bottle it was so different I was quite disappointed however, this crazy concoction grew on me to the point that it is now my go to drink just about every night. I can not believe my turnaround on this amazing dram! Bourbon, Scotch and Brandy all rolled into one fantastic experience.

Dustin,
Big fan of the Starward Nova with the red wine notes. However, I expected this to be a little sweeter and it had quite the smoky type flavor that I wasn't expecting. Good, not great in my opinion.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
This is an interesting whisky. The drier wheat component tones down the sweetness added by the wine cask aging. I liked it neat, you could use it in a mixed drink. The price is right...I recommend buying it and adding a unique offering to your bar for your adventuresome friends.
 
Michael
Michael,
With my limited experience this whiskey was easy to drink over a little ice. It did have a distinct smell likely from the malted barley.
 
Travis
Travis,
“Different” is how I would describe this. If you are looking for something new and different this is a solid pick for the price. It took a few tries to warm up to it. At first I thought the wine taste from the aging process ruined it...however after a few tries it is a tasty whiskey. Worth a shot.

Very smooth and slightly sweet. I loved it!!!!
 
Janice
Janice,
Very smooth, but it tastes much more like a good scotch than a whiskey. I detect earthy tones along with some fruity notes, but I could not pick up any berry. It does have a velvety finish.

joseph,
I thought it tasted swell. Woody start to a mild bitters and mint finish. For price thought it was definitely worth it!
 
Teddy
Teddy,
Completely unexpected, but an entire delight. Reminiscent of a good sherried dram, but unique in its own right.
