Tasting notes by Billy A
Sweetshop notes leap out of the glass – tins of travel sweets and candy necklaces – accompanied by candied flowers, spiced sponge cake with butter icing and jam filling, sugar-dusted puff pastry, sultanas and a touch of gooey caramel.
Thick and sweet, with golden-syrup sandwiches (on brown bread), malt loaf, ginger cake, speculaas and lebkuchen biscuits, and a background hint of black liquorice. As that calms down, the liquorice slowly becomes more minty and mentholy, with a touch of milk chocolate and cherry jam sneaking in around the sides.
Fresh and leafy to start, with mint slowly fading to a sweet and chocolatey end.
While the spiciness on the palate suggests that this whisky is youthful, it has definitely picked up a lot of flavour in its time in wood and combines freshness with complexity. There's a marked contrast between nose, palate and finish, but each element works well. I'm a fan.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Ripe orchard fruits: pears, bananas and apples with vinous raisins and dried figs. Caramel, vanilla and marzipan balance the fruit.
Filled with rich, toasty caramel, creme brulee, more fruit, pepper, sandalwood, nutmeg and marzipan. A full, sweet, juicy mouthfeel.

First time I’ve tasted a whisky from Australia and it didn’t disappoint. A sweet and well rounded nose. On the palate I got caramel, dark chocolate and macaroons. I highly recommend giving this one a try.
A beautifully rounded and mellow whisky. Rich and sugary on the palate
Rich, nutty and sweet - like biscuits in a glass! I've ordered my second bottle already.
Being a Aussie I might be a little biased this is one of the Better Australian whiskys available overseas. Starward has a nice color. a very caramalized smell and taste. I wouldn't call it very sweet but Semi sweet. Very pleasurable to drink.
