Lambay Small Batch Blend Finished in Cognac Casks
Lambay // Ireland
This Irish whiskey brand is a collaboration between Camus Cognac and the Baring Family's Revelstoke Trust. The brand launched in the US during the first quarter of 2018. This triple-distilled blend is aged first in ex-bourbon barrels. The whiskey then finishes its maturation in ex-cognac barrels which were exposed to sea air. Lambay shares its name with the island just off the coast of Dublin in the Irish Sea which the Baring Family has owned since 1904. This private island is also an animal sanctuary.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.

"The nose gets started with a combination of caramel and molasses sweetness, along with peanut shells, and then vanilla toffee. The entry to the palate is watery and light, with raspberries, sugary fruit jams, and dark chocolate. The finish is short and sweet, with a touch of oak, and milk chocolate covered berries."
