The 4th Rare Small Batch Lark Collaboration with Wolf of the Willows Brewery
The Boilermaker Whisky and Beer Set.
Every year, empty Lark Distillery whisky casks are selected by the team at Wolf of the Willows Brewery and sent on a journey across the Bass Strait. Filled with the Wolf’s Imperial Johnny Smoke Porter and left to season, the casks work their magic on the beer before being decanted and returned to Lark to finish the Wolf release single malt whisky.
Wolf of the Willows IV is the annual benchmark expression of their barrel exchange program, with a solid core of malt, earth, and smoke. For this year’s release Lark's Head Distiller, Chris Thomson, selected liquid from their Bothwell Distillery, hand picked for its ability to highlight, lift, and freshen any finish, even one as dark and brooding as Johnny.

Mark IV of the Barrel Exchange Project with Lark Distillery see’s the release of the 2021 version of the Lark Barrel Aged Imperial Johnny Smoke Porter (JSP). This Imperial Smoke Porter was aged in 100L Lark barrels for around nine months and weighs in at 11.8% ABV. 'Johnny' is a dark and broody Imperial Smoked Porter, thick, velvety and rich with whisky barrel-aged flavours of vanilla, oak, peat, dark chocolate, molasses, truffles and espresso, resulting in the 4th Edition Wolf Imperial JSP Release: a unique beer that reflects a collaborative journey.
