Whisky Review: Starward Ginger Beer Cask #2

A.K.A. “The Aussie Pastime”

This whisky has been matured in a ginger beer cask. I can’t think of anything more fitting than this to pay homage to the Australian culture.

Gingery nose, ginger beer with a touch of vanilla. You are getting what you’ve paid for. Fresh white oak in the backend with cumin smoke.

Spiciness hits first in the palate, then you get the ginger beer and light vanilla coming through.

Gingery notes carrying in for a light spicy finish.

Definitely a light body whisky with some kick to it, good for a summertime arvo.
