This peat-smoked Lark expression is made up of 100% Tasmanian peated barley and matured for 6.5 years in an ex-Heaven Hill Bourbon cask. Whilst it is “heavily peated” by Lark standards; the smoke presents as a rich char flavour on the finish. Released at 46% it is balancing out the peat influence with the rich toffee of Lark spirit and the bright citrus and vanilla of the bourbon cask.
Nose: Peaches, cream, green grass and lemon hide the brooding underlying characters of earth, and peat. Oranges, mineral and vanilla custard intertwine with raspberry and bourbon notes.
Palate: Sweet cream, orange cordial and vanilla booms into big smoke and peaty cherries. Grapefruit, orange and burnt bacon are a mismatch made in Heaven. Think marshmallows on a bonfire.
Finish: Long and smoky with cream and oranges. Surprisingly bright with a wonderful bacon-like finish.
Best Time to Drink: A campfire dram. By the campfire or dreaming of a campfire.
