Starward Nova Single Malt Australian Whiskey
Middle / Lightly charred or steamed barrels sourced from Australian wineries making great shiraz, cabernets and pinot noirs. Often filled fresh when the barrel is still wet with wine. Matured in Melbourne’s wildly varied climate for three years.
End / Exceptional length thanks to the red wine barrels. Bright aromatic notes of red berries, orchard fruits, vanilla, caramel and soft oak spice.
Double Gold medal winner at San Francisco World Spirits. 92 points from Wine Enthusiast.

This is the first whisky I tried from Starward and I loved it! I was unsure about the wine barrel aging, but it really adds a lot of character without overpowering the whisky flavors. There is a really nice balance of red fruit, oaky spice and berries and has a rich mouthfeel without being too sweet. Great for Manhattans, Old-Fashioneds and Boulevardiers, or just by itself!
