A young, exciting young single cask whisky from Tasmania’s Lark distillery bottled by the island’s independent bottler Heartwood.
Drawn from cask LD765 – a 300 litre sherry cask – this is young by design and is the first in a series of three whiskies from the same cask (the other two will be called ‘The Adolescent’ and ‘The Adult’).
The peated Lark spirit was filled into the cask April 2012. The Toddler was bottled June 2016.
Tasting note: Bright gold showing considerable legs. Powerful aromas include white pepper, hints of smoky cardamom followed by vanilla and Marie biscuits. Creamy, gently bittersweet, tingly spirit; flavours suggest light rye bread, a touch of caraway and a dash of anise to finish. Outstanding balance with the sugars lingering. Delicate pepper / gingerbread aftertaste. Precocious young Lark. 63.1% Alc./Vol.
