Lambay Cognac Finished Single Malt Irish Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1385883 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The story behind this whiskey reflects a tale of two islands: First, the spirit is aged on Lambay Island, off the coast of Dublin. The whiskey is then finished in Cognac casks from Île de Ré, off the coast of France. While the finished result doesn’t exactly sing of the salty sea, it’s a pleasing sipper nonetheless, with a dark honey hue, bold, fruity aroma and drying palate mixing cedar with big, red apple bite and a long, robust vanilla-and-clove exit.

Outer quote mark Spicier and darker than their blend, this delivers heather honey, banana peel, cashew, pepper, ground coriander, and bay leaf. Quite light-bodied and delicate to begin with, but the Cognac cask adds fruitiness and greater complexity. Sugary sweet, with tingly spices, honey, cracked black pepper, clove-studded oranges, and tangy marmalade. A finish of bitter orange, pepper, and fondant cream makes this a worthy addition to the Cognac cask revival. (JM, Spring 2018) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

This joint venture between the Baring Family, owners of the unique island on the Eastern coast of Ireland which is home to one of the largest seabird colonies in Ireland, and the Camus family of cognac fame. Together they built a warehouse on the island and began to fill it with triple distilled single malt whiskey. The whiskey is finished in ex-cognac barrels from Camus exceptional cellars and is impregnated with the humid islands character during that time. It is then blended with water from the Island's famous Trinity Well and bottled without chill filtration. The resulting whiskey has a robust texture and a soft subtle sweetness imparted by the old Cognac casks. Expect a round fruity and floral character with bits of spice from the french oak and a deep earthy malt.
