Lark, Port Cask, bottled 2011, 43% ABV

Typical cost of this bottle;

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Rich golden / light amber

Nose: Offers some very aromatic grassiness, almost to the point of an Alpine spring meadow, but not quite although it does continue to expand delightfully in this direction. Eventually a hint of smokiness suggests very floral or even slightly perfumed bonfire embers. Very nice.

Palate: This
also suggests perfumed grassiness but it has an extra facet of creamy fruitiness with a touch of vanilla.

Finish: Long, nay very long as it just keeps on going.

Overall Impression:
Truly delightful with depths of floral aromas and grassiness which tantalise the nose and palate, I love it.

 

   
 

 

Lark, Port Cask No.205, bottled 2011, 58% ABV

Typical cost of this bottle;

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Light amber

Nose: Just explodes with lightly perfumed fragrances, delightfully light but very aromatic. Then a suggestion of mandarin in the background followed by the development of faint woodiness.

Palate: This
is sweet, perfumed, massively intense and also including brandy snap or even butterscotch. Marvellous.

Finish: Very long and intriguing with all from the nose and palate just concentrated further.

Overall Impression:
Light and extremely intense with lots of sweet exotic fruitiness. In fact it's mental, bloody marvellously mental.
