Lark Wolf Release IV Single Malt Whisky

In 1992 the Lark household became the first Australian distillery to produce single malt spirit in 154 years. The spirit continued to grow and evolve, leading to the creation of a rich Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky aged in small casks. Finally in 1998, after years in the making, from Bill and Lyn’s kitchen table to Davey Street Bond Store, the first Lark Distillery Single Malt Whisky was released commercially.
The Lark Distillery has seen substantial growth over the years, but the commitment to producing a quality Tasmanian Single Malt has stayed the same. Now situated in the heart of the famous Coal River Valley, the Lark site has grown to accommodate a 1800L Wash Still and a 500L Spirit Still, both running 7 days a week.

For four years running, Lark had shared a vision with their friends across the pond — handcrafting modern tipples distinct in quality, flavour and character. Lark sends them whisky casks, the friends age their Johnny Smoke Porter in them and Lark then use them to finish this beast of a release. This year’s comes from Lark’s Bothwell Distillery, handpicked because it lifts and freshens any finish — even one as dark and brooding as Johnny.
This big, bad release is back and has as much howl as ever. Once again swapping barrels with Victoria’s Wolf of the Willows Brewery, Wolf Release IV takes a porter-braised core of smoked malt and chocolate and gives it a bright citrus lift.

    Nose:    Bright citrus, toasted coconut, caramelised malt, grapefruit, cocoa powder and oak.

    Taste:    Orange syrup, grapefruit, ancient oak, smoked malt, dark chocolate and toffee.

    Finish:    Smoky, creamy and bright citrus.
