Description: The original Starward single malt whisky which is solely matured in Australian fortified wine barrels. These barrels are hand selected, re-coopered, re-toasted and re-sized specifically for ageing the Starward spirit.
The barrels used previously contained Apera, which is an Australian take on Spanish sherry. The barrels used are 40 to 50 years old and have rich and complex flavours of dried fruit, spice and sweetness.
The product’s name derives from a traditional method of inventory management. The team at Starward have adopted a modern approach to the solera system to ensure consistency of every batch of Starward Single Malt. It also means that every Apera barrel they have ever emptied is in every bottle of Starward Solera.
