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