Lark Distillery in conjunction with Destination Cellars invites you to a very special evening of Whisky Wolvery on Friday August 7th at 7pmin person in the beautiful surrounds of RACV Hobart Hotel.
We will kick off Tasmanian Whisky Week 2020 with a Lark lineup to make you salivate! This is NOT an online event! Tasmanian whisky lovers - you are invited to join us in person to celebrate some fabulous local whisky.
We will not only delve into the soon to be released Lark's The Wolf Third Limited Release, but have also secured a batch of the Wolf of the Willows Lark Barrel Aged Imperial Johnny Smoke Porter #3, as well as sourcing a bottle of the now extinct The Wolf Second Limited Release to try alongside each other. You will also be treated to the sold out Sherry aged and Sherry finished 2020 Limited Release plus the latest release of the Lark Symphony No.1.
Joining us again this year to host will be the venerable pack leader Michael Blake (Canis lupus larkus) from Lark Distillery for an evening of celebration, as he explains how The Wolf Release came into fruition, and how it represents a unique exchange of ideas, passion and casks.
Lark Distillery whisky casks were carefully selected by the crew at Wolf of the Willows Brewery, then decanted and sent on a journey across the Bass Strait. Filled with the Wolf’s Imperial Johnny Smoked Porter and left to age, they worked their magic before being emptied and returned to Tasmania, to be refilled with Lark single malt whisky. The result is the Wolf Release: a unique single malt whisky that reflects an adventurous and collaborative journey.
The line-up from Lark is:
Sherry Sherry 50.8% Single Malt Whisky This single malt whisky is the ultimate sherry bomb. Inspired by some of the world’s most famous sherry monsters, the Lark Sherry Aged and Sherry Finish single malt whisky has been matured in 100L sherry casks before finishing in an extremely old oak sherry butt from South Australia.
The Wolf Release #3 49% Single Malt Whisky Lark Distillery whisky casks were carefully selected by our friends at Wolf of the Willows, decanted, and sent on a journey across the Bass Strait. Filled with the Wolf’s Imperial Johnny Smoked Porter and left to age, they worked their magic before being emptied and returned to Tasmania, to be refilled with Lark single malt whisky. The result is the Wolf Release: a unique single malt whisky that reflects an adventurous and collaborative journey.
The Wolf Release #2 54% Single Malt Whisky The 2019 collaboration - the same process as above, with this incarnation bottled at 54%abv.
2020 Lark Barrel Aged 12.8% Imperial Johnny Smoke Porter #3 Mark III of the barrel exchange project with Lark Distillery see’s the release of the 2020 version of the Lark Barrel Aged Imperial Johnny Smoke Porter (JSP). This Imperial Smoke Porter was aged in 100L Lark barrels for an average of 9 months and weighs in at a hefty 12.8%. The result is an Imperial Smoke Porter rich with whisky barrel aged flavours of vanilla, oak, peat, dark chocolate, molasses, truffles and espresso.
Symphony No.1 Blended Malt Whisky This is the first blended malt from the House of Lark, representing a composition of exceptional Tasmanian single malt whiskies. Crafted from a symphony of complementary casks, Head Distiller Chris Thomson has expertly woven the complexity of American oak bourbon with the balance of sherry and heavier depth of port to form a creamy, oily melody of flavours; a malt whisky that’s full of life from start to finish and carries the uncompromising signature of Lark Whisky.
