Starward Peated Finish Single Malt Australian Whisky

Meet Peated Finish
A New World take on an old classic, our Peated Finish is a single malt whisky aged in red wine barrels and finished in peated barrels straight off the rugged coast of Islay, Scotland. Melded with Starward's quintessential tropical notes and the smoky, earthy flavors from Islay’s coastal peat, expect a whisky that's unlike any other. That's why it won a Gold medal at the recent 2023 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. This is something special. 

Where there's smoke, there's flavor
We took our three-year-old, red wine cask matured whisky and transferred it into heavily saturated, peated casks, where it was left to finish for 18 months. Thanks to these premium quality ex-Islay casks, the flavor of our Peated Finish offers a deep, smoky finish that pays homage to the barrel's Scottish provenance. The spirit is perfectly balanced with our quintessential tropical fruit flavors, our signature.
