Dram Review: Starward Ginger Beer Cask #2

[NAS・Official Bottling・Single Cask Release]

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.

Nose:

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.

Palate & Finish:

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.

Thoughts:

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