THE RARE CASK RELEASES: Lark's Rare Cask Series is the pursuit of excellence; a continuous quest to uncover the world’s rarest and most storied casks.

Crafted from one of the rarest and most expensive oaks in the world.
Mizunara Oak is one of the rarest and most expensive oaks in the world. The age-old tree, beautiful in form, grows slowly as both trunk and branches twist and turn. Time is the wisest counsellor of all, and it can take up to 200 years for this rare tree to suitably mature to be ready for the perfect whisky cask.
Craft and balance are then used to complement the unique Mizunara Oak, and our Head Distiller has carefully selected second fill bourbon casks, ensuring a precise and mature spirit which subtly influences the oak, so that the rare Mizunara Oak shines through, from cask to glass.
Nose: Balanced notes of bright coconut, sandalwood and orange blossom intertwine perfectly with fresh summer apples, lemon, rose and a hint of green tea.
Palate: Toasted Mizunara oak shines on the palate. More coconut and fresh apple, topped with tropical lychee and guava. Rounding out with crisp pear and cherry pie. Delicate, soft and complex all in one.
Finish: Long and lingering, with notes of orchard fruits and rich custard.
COPPER MEDALLION: OWN A PART OF LARK HISTORY.
The copper medallion included around the neck of the bottle, meticulously handcrafted from a decommissioned Lark copper pot still, is a repurposed remnant of our rich and exciting history. A captivating marriage of old and new.
For those who may want to keep their 700ml Mizunara bottle unopened, a complimentary 100ml bottle is included with your purchase. Taste, enjoy or keep at your leisure.
