A bottle of the second release of Starward’s Tawny Cask Single Malt Whisky.
A much anticipated follow up to the highly awarded Tawny Cask #1 release a couple of years ago (Awarded Best Worldwide Whisky at the Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Competition 2020) is here. As part of the Starward Special Project series, only have a finite number of the new release will be available for purchase.
This whisky was fully matured in Tawny fortified wine casks (both fresh and charred). Their distillers then threw in some puncheon and hogshead barrels to add more depth and character to the whisky , which showcases the vibrant tropical notes of Starward’s spirit.
Alongside the vibrant tropical notes, Tawny #2 immediately gives way to dried raisins and toasted oak on the nose with complimentary flavours of brown sugar and rich dried fruits coming through on the palate. A real throw back to some home baked cakes and pies.
Distilled in 2015 and bottled in 2022
