Starward Single Barrel Captain's Pick #3

From the world's most unique Single Barrel Program and hand-picked by Starward's founder, this delicate wonder comes from a 2012 American oak fresh red wine barrique sourced from the Barossa Valley of Australia's wine region. This spirit unveils bright, unexpected, and adventurous flavors, with notes of chamomile, rhubarb, and honey. The complex single malt is meant to be savored, discovered, and unraveled, offering a delicate mouthfeel and finish that will immerse you in flavors of honeysuckle and stewed apple, concluding with fresh white nectarine and honey. This is a single malt begging to be savored under the stars on a summer night.

A unique expression of Starward, this Single Barrel showcases all the characteristics that make Starward the world's most awarded distillery. With Australian wine barrel maturation, meticulous 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.
