An incredible whisky, even at young age, Lark single malt is produced in Tasmania, and is aged in small 100 litre "quarter" casks, to proffer an increased maturation, before bottling as an unblended, single cask whisky. This was awarded a silver medal at the 2011 World Whiskeys Masters.
Nose: Very malty, spicy nose, with big notes of dried fruit, especially dates, figs and sultanas. A touch of nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper heat, with a suggestion of smoke.
Palate: Big and bold, with plenty of sweetness, and a curious, oily peat which builds to a crescendo atop chili, toffee apples and malt.
Finish: Decent length, with vanilla sweetness and Christmas spices. Toffee again, with spicy oak and smoke.

This had almost no nose and while nice was not in any way remarkable.

I bought this one assuming it was gimmicky on the QC's from OZ but figured I'd give it a try. NOT AT ALL. This is wonderful stuff. I don't have any poshy sherried whiskies to compare against (and yes, this does go down like a heavily-sherried whisky), but compared to the A'bunadh (one of my favorites), it's no contest. This is so much nicer. Granted, double the price, but obviously high quality sherried whiskies demand that.I wish I had a Macallan or GlenDronach or somethimg to do a side-by-side. However I have no doubt this would hold its own, at half the cost. Not a gimmick. "Silver medal" is surprising.(N.B. to distillers: Laphroaig QC is another of my favorites so I'd love to see more QC work in the future)(Also note, two of the previous reviewers compared to Islay ... it's by no means smoky like Islay; you have to reach to find any smoke at all; so don't let that throw you off if you're not a smoke fan).A Scotch / Japanese whisky snob, I'm actually kind of sad that someone else is breaking in.

Balanced, complex without any single flavour dominating the rest. Tassie peat, so very different to Islay-style - eucalyptus rather than iodine. Good stuff, try it.

Having been an Islay man for many years, Tasmanian whisky really knocked my socks off. Full of rich flavour with a slight smokey after taste. It is expensive but those of you who have never tried it you are in for a treat and though not from a traditional area this is a whisky that will stand the test of time and will only get better.

Had a miniature brought back by family who were visiting Tasmania. As the description said, lots of Christmas spice flavours with a beautiful smooth finish with a hint of smoke. A real treat to try.
