Lark Single Malt Single Cask 43%ABV Whisky is the flagship product of the Lark Distillery. First produced in small quantities in 1992, It is distilled from Tasmanian (Franklin) barley, malted at the Cascade Brewery. The whisky is lightly peated (approximately 50% of the malt is peated) and resembles in flavour a Scottish Speyside or Highland whisky.
We tasted Lark Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky at Meeting No. 15 on August 29, 2013. We rated it very highly at 3.25 out of 5. Lark Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky ranks 4th overall in Other Whiskey. At a street price of $159, this spirit is expensive given the our rating of it.
Lots of caramel on the nose. Strong taste at first, but when you gulp it down it feels nice and smooth. Sweet. Better straight than diluted.
Smooth on the palette with a nice bite in the Speyside tradition as it goes down. Slightly peppery but not overly so. Slippery on the tongue. The peatiness is very slight.
Golden brown, clings to the walls, bold and heavy against the mouth. Rich and fruity and a drop of water to cut out the booze and leave the discomfort. Charcoal and wheat fields.
