Lark Single Cask, 58%

Price: $228.00 Issue: Fall 2011 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

Lark is on Australia's frontline, but this is a hard sell. This is big bucks for untried whisky. No doubt though, this is history in the making. There's a big cinnamon and nutmeg kick to this, and with water, a rootsy, sweet apple core and a menthol hit wrap themselves around flavors of crab apples and dates. It's different, easy to like, and exciting. Australian whisky is on a roll. AUD220 (Not available in the U.S.)
