New World Projects is the experimental label from the makers of Starward Whisky.
Quoting from the label on the bottle . . .
” New World Projects is our way of exploring new frontiers in the world of spirits. Each of our distillers starts with an unanswered question and has the autonomy to chart a course towards the answer”
This whisky was aged in Pedro Ximinez Sherry Casks and wow, what a result! The unmistakable PX flavour adds a delightful scent of ripe sultanas to an already complex yet silky smooth palate.
WITH WATER: Adding H2O made the complex and enticing palate even more so.
Very limited production brings the price up to around $130 ( if you can find it ). However if price is not an issue, this one is definitely worth a crack.
