RARE CASK III

The third release in our Rare Cask Series, this single malt has been finished in a cask that once held Brokenwood’s celebrated Graveyard Shiraz.

Our masterfully crafted single malt whisky from our Coal Valley Distillery has met its perfect match in two incredible Graveyard Shiraz finishing casks, sourced from the highly acclaimed Brokenwood Wines in the foothills of the Hunter Valley.

An incredibly complex web of sweet fruit, intoxicating spice and slightly unexpected dark chocolate, Rare Cask Brokenwood Graveyard Shiraz is a fruity punch of Shiraz and the intoxicating complexity of a freshly opened spice drawer. Oak, tannin and single malt whisky; perfectly combined.

Our Rare Cask Series is the pursuit of excellence; a continuous quest to uncover the world’s rarest and most storied casks. Celebrating the distinct characteristics of every cask, each release has its own unique story that begins across cultures and continents, and culminates in a one-of-a-kind single malt whisky that reflects a collaborative journey.

Tasting Notes

  • Nose

    An initial sweet fruity hit of blood plums and fresh mulberries give way to an intoxicating cocktail of allspice, cardamom, earth, black pepper and cinnamon. Seville orange marmalade, fruit mince pies and a hint of Dutch liquorice weave an incredibly complex web of fruit, spice, and all things nice.

  • Palate

    Following a big bite of sweet red apple there’s a hint of honey and eucalypt. Light brown sugar, almonds, dried ginger & cinnamon.

  • Finish

    Green peppercorns, eucalypt, hint of dark chocolate, orange oil. Oak and wine tannin give this whisky a dry yet refined finish. A fruity punch of Shiraz and the intoxicating complexity of a freshly opened spice drawer.

Paired with a complimentary 100mL

For those who may want to keep their 700ml Brokenwood unopened, a complimentary 100ml bottle is included with your purchase. Taste, enjoy or keep at your leisure.

Copper Medallion: Own a part of Lark history

The copper medallion included around the neck of the bottle, meticulously handcrafted from a decommissioned Lark copper pot still, is a repurposed remnant of our rich and exciting history. A captivating marriage of old and new.

Finished in Brokenwood's 2018 Graveyard Shiraz Cask

Brokenwood’s 2018 Graveyard Shiraz Cask was bestowed James Halliday’s prestigious Wine of the Year in 2021 and awarded 99 points. The famed ‘Graveyard Vineyard’ was named so because council planners originally designated it (but never utilised it), as a cemetery. Acquired by Brokenwood in 1978 and remaining the sole source of grapes for the label’s flagship Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz - made in tiny batches on only the very best wine-making years. This release has the added significance of coinciding with Brokenwood’s 50th year in operation and 50 years since the Graveyard Vineyard was planted.
