Lark Distillery makes fine promising whisky. So far, according to my observations, all the editions of whisky are un-chillfiltered, natural color, in addition single cask.

Offering a single cask whisky makes the individual drams from different casks may differ. Distiller’s art in this case is largely about on maintaining a high quality standard of production, so that each bottle of the type (bourbon cask, sherry cask or port cask) could be characterized by relatively similar features in their groups.

In the Lark Distillery Whisky Bar I had the opportunity to try Distiller’s Selection cask no. 241, my today’s edition comes out of the barrel no. 270, which previously matured bourbon. In both cases, it is nautural color, un-chillfiltered, single cask and 46% ABV.

I have to admit that both releases do not differ significantly from each other, except that in the one tasted at the bar I felt more peat, both in smell and taste. Previously, the smell had less notes of green and vegetables, also without a bit of bitterness, but a sort of a little office glue, the color seems to have been a bit brighter.

As we are dealing with natural color it is worth to be noted that the color of tasted expression is full honey, pleasure to the eye.

N: very fruity, slightly peaty, green – vegetable, gently spicy, vanilla is also perceptible.

T: begins with the light spiciness, then slightly peaty, the spiciness still remains, and even increases, there are fruity notes and slightly bitter oak flavour.

F: quite long, still accompanied by a delicate spiciness.

After adding a small amount of water the smell and taste get rounder, become fuller and deeper.

Very good malt, worth a try for those interested in the world. I think that the demand for Lark unfortunately will be limited due to the high price as compared for example to the Scotch.

Score: 86/100
