Lark Single Malt Whisky at 43% is the flagship product of the Lark Distillery. 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. The whisky is double distilled in locally crafted potted stills and aged in 100 litre oak casks. It is matured up to eight years in the smaller barrels which have a much larger surface area-to-volume of liquid. This allows a faster rate of evaporative losses and a considerably shorter maturation period than that required with the larger barrels used in Scotland.
At 43% a/v our whisky shows off the beautiful floral and fruity notes on the nose and also at the front of the palate on tasting. The whisky then opens up across the palate with a hint of plum pudding and the rich oily malt, finishing with that delicate hint of Tasmanian Highland Peat.
