A special cask was carefully selected from Lark Distillery's neighbours at Frogmore Creek Winery to mature a fruit jus, handmade by local patisserie Jean-Pascal and used to create their Christmas fruit mince pies. This rich, freshly-emptied cask made its way across the road to Lark Distillery, where it was filled with Lark single malt whisky and left to mature, imparting delicious, spiced maple syrup characteristics. Nose: Sweet mandarin and decadent caramel leads into biscuits and figs. Maple syrup drizzled over pancakes topped with cinnamon and nutmeg. Palate: Orange peel-infused caramel pudding topped with spices. Dried fruits play off the rich, earthy oak. Finish: Christmas cake in a glass.
