Willie Smith's Lark Whisky Barrel Aged CiderWillie Smith's
Maker's Notes: Our finest dry organic cider was selected and carefully aged for an extended period in Tasmanian Lark whisky barrels to create Willie Smith’s Whisky Aged Cider. Following maturation times ranging from six to twelve months, individual barrels were selected and blended to achieve a complex, balanced cider that expresses both soft apple cider characteristics and persistent whisky and oak notes. Soft carbonation and no filtration has resulted in a structured cider with textured mouthfeel and lingering warmth. We recommend gently rotating the bottle to re-suspend solids before serving.
Kieran's Notes: Apple & a hint of whisky on the nose. The whisky flavour has mellowed a little thanks to the additional time on lees and the bottle fermentation has resulted in a more rounded carbonation & fuller flavour. Very easy drinking despite the high alcohol. The whisky & alcohol leave the tongue lightly tingling. Even better than the last edition, which was already superb.
