Starward Single Barrel Red Wine Barrique

A first-rate single malt whisky from down under, totally exclusive to The Whisky Shop. This is a 3-year-old expression that has been aged tropically in Melbourne. A single barrel whisky, this was bottled in April 2021 after being laid to rest in 2017. This is from the New World Whisky Distillery, creator of Starward. Barley is sourced from Australia, and the spirit is matured in an American oak red wine cask from Victoria. The use of a small cask makes this one’s maturation especially fast. Beautifully rich, this is a wonderfully tasty Australian whisky, from a small distillery with a lot of heart. An excellent whisky for Father's Day if you're looking to gift him a rare dram.

Deep amber in colour, it reveals tart berry fruits, vanilla toffee, and oak shavings on the nose. The palate is sweet, fruity, with long, warming spice. This spice lingers in a beautifully oaky, tannic finish, mouth-coating and mentholic.

Kyrö Malt

A fabulous release from Finnish distillery Kyrö! This expression is a standout rye whiskey that is full to the brim with perfectly balanced sweet and spicy notes that are bound to impress. The whiskey is bottled at 47.2% abv.

Alfred Giraud Harmonie

This French blended malt whisky from Alfred Giraud begins as a blend of two unpeated malt whiskies, the majority matured in XO cognac casks and a proportion in Limousin and American oak casks. This double malt blend is aged in XO cognac casks for a time before being married with a lightly peated French malt, with the resulting triple malt blend finished in the same XO cognac casks before being bottled at 46.1% abv.

Bold and inviting on the nose, aromas of warm raisin bread and baking spices surround notes of smoky barley. On the palate this whisky strikes a harmonious balance between being powerful and delicate at the same time; its silky mouthfeel gives way to more baking spices and ripe, juicy grapes, with a wisp of peat smoke. The finish is deliciously long, with the gentle peat amplifying the soft tannins of the old cognac casks. This is a dram fit for a king!
