The Lark Distillery Rum Island Quiet Cannon Rum (200ml)

$34.99 Bottle
  • ABV 50%

Lark Rum Island was developed by Ross Dinsmoor early in 2008 as Tasmania's first commercial Rum release in over 160 years. Produced from Queensland molasses, Larks do a slow fermentation for up to 3 weeks and then carefully double distill and finish the rum in a small batch 500lt copper pot still. French Limousin barrels that were used previously for aging port by the Seppeltsfield Winery in Barossa Valley are reassembled into 100 litre barrels to accelerate maturation. Matured for two years or more, it's only bottled “when it tastes right” rather than at a specific age. 50% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... an immediate, bold presence on the nose, presenting aromas of fermented molasses, whisky, fresh tobacco, overripe burnt peaches, dark chocolate, charred wood, burnt leather and a shy floral delicacy. The esters understandably dominate the rum’s bouquet and can interfere with it’s more attractive aromas if you aren’t on your guard. Approached carefully, Quiet Cannon delivers aromas in great quantity, as the name suggests it should. The initial taste is equally powerful, though slightly sweet and dry initially due to the spirit’s 50% ABV overproof nature, followed by intense flavors of grain, wood, peat, and lesser versions of what is revealed on the nose. As expected, the rum is full bodied with an almost oily texture and a long, dry, finish rich in flavor. Quiet Cannon is a Scotch-and-cigar lover’s rum. -
