This Australian single cask from Lark has a malty nose with notes of almonds, ginger, red apples, peaches, and a hint of cedar shavings. The taste has a dark, thick mouthfeel with manuka honey at first, followed by an intense blast of cinnamon and black pepper spice and a subtle touch of oak that comes out slowly as the spices fade into the very long and dry finish. A few drops of water mellows the nose, but not the palate, and adding water is highly recommended. (June, 2014)
