Lark Distillery Classic Cask Single Malt Whisky, Tasmania $198 / 700ml
This is a seriously good Scotch malt-style whisky, distilled in Tasmania using Tasmanian produce. The bouquet is superbly aromatic: fruity, oaky and lightly peaty; the palate intense and lively and almost a touch fiery, but very fruity with great flavour and balance. 43 per cent alcohol.
