Starward Solera Single Malt Whisky 700ml
Rich and well balanced. Jammy fruits, creme brûlée and spice with a lingering dry finish.
Solera is a traditional method the Spanish used to age their Sherry and keep it consistent. A fractional amount of each young cask is blended with more mature spirit. It's the inspiration for making their Solera. And it means there's still a touch of the first ever cask in every bottle made today. Every Solera ingredient is sourced from just a day's drive away. A quintessential grain like Australian malted barley was a no-brainer to start with. Then, for a bold, craft flavour we ferment our barley with brewers' yeast.
The Apera barrels, an Aussie fortified wine similar to Sherry, have typically held spirit over decades. That's some seriously flavourful oak. These casks mostly come from McWilliams Winery, right on the border between Victoria and New South Wales.
The nose is bright tropical and orchard fruits, caramel and vanilla. On the palate toasty caramel and creme brûlée, banana, figs and sweet spice. With a finish that is juicy and full with a lingering dry spice.
