Starward Nova Australian Single Malt Whisky 700ml
Nova is matured exclusively in red wine barrels from wineries making great Australian shiraz, cabernets and pinot noirs. This whisky reflects Melbourne in every sip. From the vibrant foodie scene to the wild weather to the world-class, cool climate wine.
Nova borrows from tradition but breaks away from it too. This whisky’s distinctly delicious flavour all starts with Starward new-make spirit.
All Nova’s carefully sourced ingredients come from just a day’s drive away.
We double distill our single malt whisky using Australian malted barley. Borrowing from the craft brewing scene, we ferment our barley with brewers’ yeast for an extra bold flavour. Then we installed custom water jackets on our giant copper stills to better control the distillation. It's tricks like this that mean we can pick the fruity characters we like and keep each batch consistent.
Nose: Like we took bright flavours of red berries and orchard fruit and coated them in soft oak spice.
Palate: Imagine a rich red berry pudding covered in vanilla, caramel and spice.
Finish: Balanced and long. The sweetness fades and the delicious flavour goes on.
