Lark Cask Strength Tasmanian Single Malt Small Cask Aged Whisky (100ml)

lark single cask

Yes, this is a great whisky. In the 1830s, however, the island's governor — concerned about drunkenness among the prisoners and their guards — outlawed distillation on the island. Tasmania is considered one of the leading regions in Australia for producing whisky, with a pristine climate and access to some of the best ingredients in the world. The whisky is double distilled in locally crafted copper-pot stills and aged in small, 100 litre oak casks. While Bill has taken a step back from distilling duties, he remains to this day a champion of Tasmanian whisky.

The Distillery runs a 1800 litre copper pot still along with a 500 litre spirit still, and produces ten to twelve 100 litre barrels per month. Some woody notes hang out in the background and blend with a light orchard fruit and and ambiguous sweetness. That ban stayed in place until 1992, when Bill Lark successfully challenged the law and opened the doors to Lark Distillery. Full of rich flavour with a slight smokey after taste. Like a Willy Wonka creation, the Lark Single Malt brings me from one seemingly disparate place to another, and the journey is pretty darn wonderful. The whisky is lightly peated approximately 50% of the malt is peated and resembles in flavour a Scottish Speyside or Highland whisky.

Lark Rum Cask Finish Review

We have sensational sweet, clean peat and, of course, some of the best quality water in the world. This is a gin I would be keen to try in a.
