Single Barrel Captain's Pick #2
Single Malt Whisky
From the world's most unique Single Barrel Program. Hand-picked by Starward's founder.
Discover why this is the second release of only a select few Single Barrel founder picks. First filled into an American Oak fresh filled red wine barrel in 2016, this barrel was then finished in a heavy char American Oak hogshead for another year, to fully develop its depth and distinction. Our quintessential candied red fruits from the barrels, and tropical notes from our new make spirit make this a luscious representation of Starward innovation and quality.
A unique expression of Starward.
Starward Single Barrels are a special, one-off display of all the characteristics that make Starward the world's most awarded distillery. From Australian wine barrel maturation, oak selection and Melbourne's wild weather, this Single Barrel is one of Starward founder David Vitale's stand-out favorites. Available for a limited time, and one time only.
Nose / Like we took bright flavours of red berries and orchard fruit and coated them in soft oak spice.
Palate / Imagine a rich red berry pudding covered in vanilla, caramel and spice.
Finish / Balanced and long. The sweetness fades and the delicious flavour goes on.
The Single Barrel Program
Only afforded to a select few, the Starward Single Barrel Program is the truest expression of our Starward style.

Rules aren't our thing usually. But there are a few guiding principles we stick by.
