First Impression: Lark RR 13

[67.1%・2 Years and 9 Months Old・Bottled in 2017・Official Bottling・Single Cask Release]

Nose:

The top note is quite piercing.  A playful dose of bubblegum with a slight squeeze of lemon wedges.  The peat smoke makes a cameo as the vanillin is released.

Palate & Finish:

Quite a juicy mouthful, a generous injection of maple syrup as the hotness passes through.

Reverts to a vanilla custard note with wee supporting acts from the oak and barley.

Thoughts:

This particular cask feels destined to play a part in a bigger picture.
