First Impression: Lark RR 01

[63.2%・3 Years and 3 Months Old・Bottled in 2017・Official Bottling・Single Cask Release]

Nose:

Vanilla fudge and wild floral note arrive in a loud manner, sweetness of the bouquet fruits echoing in the background.  Gunpowder and beef broth well masked by a fine layer of smoke.

Palate & Finish:

Such a juicy delivery with a lot of ale DNA.  Vanilla essence, condensed milk, breakfast cereal and cherry liquor well layered; hot but rewarding with Hibba Bubba and the citrus lightly dancing towards the finish, more pineapples and bubblegum stretch the finish further.

Thoughts:

A curveball that is fairly wild, unbalanced but very much a character.
