Lambay Single Malt Finished in Cognac Casks
Single Malt — Ireland
Reviewed May 30, 2020
Summerton Virtual Whisky Festival sample. This is a bit of a mongrel due to the time in the cognac. A very light, fruity dram. Apparently, the spirit spends around 6-months in the cognac casks and the whisky itself is around the 5.5 year mark. There is some saline as it develops, but overall I get the plummy sweetness from the cognac more than anything. The aftertaste is quite long and warm. I’d certainly come back to this one. (Like the small batch, I had a bit of an allergic reaction to this one and couldn’t stop sneezing)!
