The Lark Legacy 20 Year Old - an unprecedented whisky with an extraordinary heritage. The most significant release in the history of The House of Lark
Lark 20 Year Old Cask 'HHF584' Legacy Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky was crafted during Bill Lark’s tenure as Head Distiller at a renowned Tasmanian distillery. For two decades this precious spirit was nurtured, soaking up complexity and history under the careful watch of Bill before finding its permanent home in the Lark bond store. Twenty years later, the result is this Legacy release; two bottlings containing some of the rarest, oldest single malts ever to emerge from the House of Lark. A rich testament to the care and craftsmanship of Bill Lark that captures the spirit of his original pioneering vision, a Tasmanian legacy that will endure for years to come.
Legacy Cask #HHF584 20 Year Aged Single Malt Whisky 68.6% ABV 500ml
A brilliant single cask, our Legacy HHF584 is a story of simplicity and complexity intertwining to create something very special. This single malt spent the first 15 years of its life maturing in French oak, it was then moved to a First Fill Bourbon cask for a further 5 years to give the whisky a sweetness with an overall balance and complexity. There is something to be said about leaving a whisky to do all the work itself, with just a small tweak here and there to make sure it's on the right path. HHF584 has been left to mature and find complexity naturally, music to the ears of Whisky enthusiast.
A Tasmanian single malt that captures the essence of an enduring legacy lasting 30 years. Crafted by Bill Lark during his tenure at a renowned Tasmanian distillery, this spirit sat with quiet conviction for two decades developing in both complexity and age under Bill’s expectant and nurturing eye.
The result is a cask containing one of the oldest and most exclusive single malts to be released under the HOUSE of LARK name. An exceptional offering, testament to Bill’s pioneering vision and our continued pursuit of the extraordinary.
