A limited edition release from Melbourne's Starward distillery, a single malt finished in dessert wine barrels.
Not as overtly sweet and the candy-themed label would have you think, the sweeter marshmallow and sweet wine notes are grounded by barley and oak notes.
Part of the distillery's Projects series, this is bottled at 48% and there are 4,800 bottles in the release. Pair with your favourite cheese board.
Nose: Dried fruits, toasted marshmallows and marzipan.
Palate: Initial sweetness on the front palate, rich dried fruits, brown sugar, cola and toasted marshmallows.
Finish: Viscous, caramelised but enough tannin leaving a well-balanced finish
