Starward Fortis Single Malt Whisky

Fortis, coming from the Latin meaning ‘bold’ or ‘brave’, brings the intensity. It’s one of the highest proof bottlings Starward ever done, a rich, full-bodied flavour balanced with the approachable velvety smoothness Starward is known for. Fortis was matured in American oak barrels which previously held shiraz and cabernet wine.

    Nose:    Madagascan vanilla pods, rich toasted American oak, blackberry jam, raisins, caramelised fig, over ripe plums.

    Taste:    Upfront vanilla, quince paste, Muscadelle raisins, chocolate ganache, cinnamon and baked banana bread.

    Finish:    Viscous and long, balanced with a finish of baking spices from the oak and ripe figs and raisins.
