Producer’s tasting Notes
The nose is filled with spiced vanilla and fresh tropical fruit. Whilst the palate is flowing with hints of Fuji apples, roasted pineapple, lightly toasted oak, and a soft tannic finish.

Now here’s an expression by Starward that takes us all out of the proverbial box.
A double grain whisky that is entirely matured in their signature Australian red wine barrels. Starward Two-Fold represents a landmark achievement for modern Australian whisky. A union of Australia’s two most quintessential grains; Wheat (35% to be precise) and Malted Barley, coming together to create a whisky that is filled with rich complexities driven by the power of two grains.
Matured in Melbourne’s intensely reactive climate, this is one beautifully balanced, affordable whisky that demands your attention and doesn’t let go. 6000 bottles were yielded in the run with a large allocation destined for the USA!
