Lark Distilling Co has released Legacy, a whisky aged for 20 years and one which the distillery says is the most significant release in its 30-year history.

Just 322 bottles of Lark Legacy HHF587A Cask are now available and this ‘once in a lifetime release’ is described as being “rich, deep and perfectly complex, finished with oak and spice, as well as long viscous malt and hints of black pepper”. The exclusive single malt is “rich and sweet on the nose, with hints of caramelised pear and vanilla custard, before taking you to sweet notes on the palette of cherry pie, maple syrup and candied orange”.

Bill Lark, founder of Lark Distilling, said: “To be able to celebrate both the second Legacy release and 30 years of Lark is a huge achievement for the whole Lark team. It’s a phenomenal milestone and we are very proud of the hard work and dedication that has been put in to produce such a quality release.”

Talking about what Legacy means to him, Head Distiller Chris Thomson adds: “This whisky recognises the 20 years of whisky making in Tasmania. For a whisky enthusiast like myself, and for those who have a passion for whisky, this Legacy series is a unique tribute to the history and significance of whisky-making not only for Lark but for Australia.

“Hallmarks of sherry and citrus notes ping around the palate, while 20-year-old spirit rises off your tongue, which has created something that feels and tastes very special.”

Lark Legacy HHF587A comes in at 65.8 per cent ABV and at $2499.99 RRP and is available now from Lark Distilling Co, until sold out.
