From Lark's website:
A single malt whisky uniquely Lark from start to finish.
The creation of our own Quiet Cannon Rum, distilled and matured to the same exacting quality as our whisky, left us with a treasure trove of rich, sweet and decadent rum casks. We selected the finest of these to finish an extremely limited quantity of Lark whisky, resulting in a one-of-a-kind single distillery expression of rum-influenced single malt whisky.
Nose:Fresh cream with butterscotch sauce, nougat wrapped around sweet pineapple with cinnamon.
Palate:Apricot danish alongside cantaloupe with vanilla custard over pancakes. Savoury notes notes start to take hold with marmalade on rye bread.
Finish:Chocolate mandarin followed by rum and raisin ice-cream served in a waffle cone. Treacle and wood resin rounds out the lengthy finish.
