Tropical fruits, toasted oak with lingering smoky peat.

Introducing, Peated Finish; Our second, 'new world' take on an old-world whisky style. It's a red wine barrel aged, single malt whisky. Finished in peated barrels, straight off the rugged coast of Islay, Scotland. Melded with Starward's quintessential tropical notes and the smoky and earthy flavours from Islay’s coastal peat. Expect a whisky that's unlike any other in Australia.

Following the successful, award-winning release of UnExpeated in 2021, we couldn’t help but have another play with some deliciously smoky, peated whisky barrels.

We took our three-year-old, maturing red wine cask whisky and transferred it into heavily saturated, peated casks, where it was left to finish for 18 months. This whisky spent double the time finishing in these ex-Islay casks than our first peated release, resulting in a deeper, smokier finish that pays homage to the barrels Scottish provenance. All perfectly balanced with Starward's quintessential tropical fruit flavours, of course.

Tasting notes

Nose: Bright tropical fruits, toasted oak followed by a hint of sweet peat.
