Starward Solera Single Malt Whisky
Starward really embrace the new world of whisky, challenging you to enjoy their whisky with food and not to be afraid to upset expectations. The Solera, named after and inspired by a traditional Spanish sherry aging technique, uses a touch of Starwards first ever cask and blends it with younger spirit. They source all their ingredients from close by (relatively speaking, as they are in Australia) using Australian malted barley, brewer’s yeast and maturing the spirit in re-coopered Apera (fortified wine) oak barrels. The wildly varied climate of their surroundings allows Starward to utilise ‘elemental maturation’ that works the whisky hard in the barrel, absorbing more flavour in a shorter time-frame. This is an award-winning whisky with flavours of tropical fruits, caramel, sweet and dry spice. Cheers mate!
