Lark ‘Wolf of the Willows’ Fourth Edition Single Malt Whisky 500ml 50%
The 4th collaboration Wolf release.
Region: Bothwell/Hobart, Tasmania
Bottler: Lark Distillery
Release date: August 2021
Off the back of the enormous (sell-out) success of the first 3 releases, the big, bad Wolf is back – Gorging and howling his way to our palates for the fourth time. Once again swapping barrels with Victoria’s Wolf of the Willows Brewery, Wolf Release IV takes a porter-braised core of smoked malt and chocolate and gives it a bright citrus lift.
The Distillery comments:
“For four years running, we’ve shared a vision with our friends across the pond — handcrafting modern tipples distinct in quality, flavour and character. We send them whisky casks; they age their Johnny Smoke Porter in them and we then use them to finish this beast of a release. This year’s comes from our Bothwell Distillery, handpicked because it lifts and freshens any finish — even one as dark and brooding as Johnny”
