"The Two Fold shows off Starward's deft hand in blending the more delicate characteristics of French oak into their "double grain" mash bill. Toasted hazelnut and dark berry aromas gather around a predominant and delightful creme brûlée center. The palate shows a little more of the grains with a round and creamy spirit featuring loads of buttered toast flavors. The berry note (from the barrel) adds a light accent in the finish."
