Starward Single Barrel Captain's Pick #2

From the world's most unique Single Barrel Program and hand-picked by Starward's founder, this release is the second in a select series of Single Barrel founder picks. First filled into an American Oak fresh red wine barrel in 2016, the barrel was then finished in a heavily charred American Oak hogshead for another year to develop its depth and distinction fully. The result is a luscious representation of Starward innovation and quality, showcasing quintessential candied red fruits from the barrels and tropical notes from the new make spirit.

A unique expression of Starward, this Single Barrel embodies all the characteristics that make Starward the world's most awarded distillery. With Australian wine barrel maturation, careful oak selection, and the influence of Melbourne's wild weather, this Single Barrel is one of Starward founder David Vitale's standout favorites. Available for a limited time and one time only, this exceptional release is a testament to the craftsmanship and innovation at Starward.

Tasting Notes

Nose - Like we took bright flavors 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 flavor goes on.
