100% Australian Single Malt aged in a range of Australian Red Wine casks made from French oak.

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.

Starward started with Australian Single Malt, and their latest release is called Left-Field. it is their signature Single Malt that has been aged in a variety of Red Wine barrels from the Barossa Valley near Adelaide and the Yarra Valley near Melbourne — both famous Wine producing regions in the south. The French oak barrels previously held Shiraz, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet. And as you would expect, this yields a strongly fruit-forward dram with plenty of berry notes and distinct florals.

Smartass Corner:
There is an expression — something is said to "come out of left field" when it is surprising or unexpected.

Flavor Spiral TM

  • jam jam
  • raspberry raspberry
  • red apple red apple
  • marmalade marmalade
  • mango mango
  • ginger ginger

Appearance / Color
Mahogany

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is a veritable fruit salad of strawberry jam, raspberry, red apple, marmalade, and a dash of mango over a base of ginger, marzipan, baking spice, and warm oak.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
On the palate the fruits open up and reveal dried cherry, cranberry and apricot over gingersnaps, cocoa, and anise with tons of wood.

Finish
The finish is medium-length, lightly dry, and a bit sweet.
