Unexpeated

Single Malt Whisky / 700ml / 48%

$149.00

Fully matured in Melbourne without a peat bog in sight, now that’s UNEXPEATED.
You’ve never tried a Starward whisky like this before. Peated, smoky whisky barrels meet red-wine-barrel-aged single malt. Islay, Scotland melds with Melbourne, Australia. And old worlds and new worlds collide.

We started with our signature red-wine-barrel-aged single malt, its flavour fruit-forward and juicy. Then we swerved from the expected. Heavily-peated whisky barrels direct from Islay’s finest distilleries would give our whisky a peat character never yet tasted in Starward.

In each sip of Unexpeated, ripe red berries meet a coastal peat smoke. Sweet peat lingers in the aroma and lengthy finish.

Pair with smoky dishes like trout or grilled eggplant for a flavour sensation. Sip alongside oysters or punchy Roquefort cheese.

When you take tradition and make it your own, delicious things happen.

COLOUR / Sunset gold 
AROMA / Tropical fruits, toasted oak and a hint of sweet peat. 
PALATE / Ripe red berries, coastal peat smoke, yellow peach and cocoa nibs. 
FINISH / Oak slowly dries the palate, with a long peated finish.
