Lambay Whiskey has announced the launch of a new three-part collector’s series of Single Malts called the Reserve Cask Series. Lambay Whiskey Single Malt – Batch 01 is the first release in the collection and limited to just 10,000 bottles.
“This series is designed to push the boundaries for our whiskey fans to taste the diversity of cask finishes we can create in our single malts. Our first Lambay Single Malt release in 2018 was a huge success with its floral, tropical notes and lingering sweetness attracting a new swathe of whiskey drinkers to Lambay,” commented Sabine Sheehan, Global Brand Ambassador Lambay Whiskey.
“This Reserve Cask Series will challenge that profile with three very different limited-edition cask releases. Oak, tobacco, salt, and peat will challenge the traditional sweet, floral, and mellow profile we had before, opening us up to new consumers that prefer those taste profiles and wish to leverage up, on their current favourites”
Lambay Whiskey Single Malt Batch 01 is a rich triple-distilled single malt, matured in bourbon barrels and finished in Lambay Whiskeys signature style of French Camus Cognac casks. It contains a higher percentage of island matured Lambay Single Malt delivering a more intense salty note. This Single Malt consists of both first fill and second-fill cognac cask finishing creating a more intense mouthfeel of spice, tobacco, and pepper on the palette.
Blended with Single Malt from the brand’s Island warehouse, the whiskey has soft smoky attributes with slight salinity and a lingering finish that balances the rich oak and herb note. Before bottling, the island’s own Trinity Well water is added in the final flourish, to deliver this delicious, triple distilled Irish whiskey.
Bottled at 43% ABV, Lambay Whiskey Single Malt Batch 01 is available via the brand’s official website.
Back in September, Lambay released its Single Cask Strength -Single Malt- Cask 2545.
