A bold and powerful Australian Single Malt aged in American oak barrels that previously held some of Australia’s finest Red Wines.

David Vitale left the corporate training software market in 2007 to launch his vision for a uniquely Australian Whisky — New World Whisky Distillery in Melbourne. Shortly thereafter he developed his first brand to fulfill that vision, and he named that brand Starward. Early-stage funding for the project came from Diageo’s in-house funding division — Distill Ventures — and they were able to build their own production distillery in 2016 located in an old airplane hanger. And while Starward began as a producer of Malt Whisky, he has since expanded to a range of Whiskies and bottled cocktails that have taken Down Under by storm.

Living up to its name, Starward Fortis Single Malt is big and bold. Like Some of the other drams in the Starward Single Malt lineup, this Whisky is aged in American oak barrels that previously held Red Wind from some of Australia’s finest wineries. But this bad-boy has been bottled at 50% ABV without chill-filtration. And that means it’s a flavor bomb with enough fruit and spice to light-up a dark night in the Outback.

Smartass Corner:
The word "fortis" comes to us from the Latin, meaning strong or powerful.

Appearance / Color
Deep Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
On the nose we found strawberry and hazelnut notes over hints of dark chocolate, gingersnaps, and sultanas.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
On the palate the nutty notes become more pronounced and carry through the notes of toasted oak, orange zest, Fig Newtons, and vanilla custard.

Finish
The finish is fairly long and warm with lingering notes of flamed oranges and vanilla.
