New Release Single Malt – Cask 2545
A tale of time and tides, Lambay Irish Whiskey is proud to announce our new release Single Malt- Single Cask Strength –Cask 2545.
Following on from the Spring release this year of Cask 4613, this limited edition, exclusive bottling is sure to whet the connoisseur’s appetite!
Lambay Single Malt is a triple distilled malt whiskey, bourbon cask matured finished in cognac casks that lay close to the Lambay island’s shoreline housed in the Sea Cask Room.
Unique and exclusive, the Single Cask Strength expression of Lambay Whiskey Single Malt is a pure taste of island life.
Cask 2545 is the fifth release of twenty in this exclusive Premium Cask Program.
Limited to just 409 bottles and will be released on our E-Store and markets such as Ireland and Europe (FR, ND, IRE, DE, UK).
All cognac casks used in the finish of this whiskey have been hand-selected for their rich aromatic profile and intense concentration from leading independent cognac house Camus. Wholly finished in these cognac casks, seasons have passed and infused the whiskey with maritime notes, evident in the salt and brine flavors in this expression.
Our warehouse lays on Lambay’s western shoreline and offers perfect conditions for cask maturation. The island with its unique micro-climate is always one or two degrees warmer than the mainland and perfect for cask maturation. Sea-spray and the island’s natural botanicals infuse the wood as the Lambay Single Malt matures.
“With each cask, we release from this exclusive collection (where only 20 casks of this type will be released to the world), we observe and appreciate how whiskey fans collect and savour these bottlings of our unique whiskey”. commented Jean-David Costerg – Managing Director of LIWC
Each bottle from Cask 2545 is recorded with a batch number on the label along with the rare signature of Lambay’s Master Blender –Yonael Bernard.
Each bottle is presented beautifully in a craft wood case with neck tag, the location and details of the cask are clearly communicated to the customer.
A darker liquid in colour to its predecessor – Cask 4613, this cask strength whiskey is full of rich wood and floral notes, the triple distillation of the Single Malt and long period of maturation in the cognac cask on Lambay Island makes for a surprisingly sweet long-lasting smooth finish – especially for this high strength whiskey.
