New Release- Cask 6688 is the latest from our exclusive Single Malt Single Cask Strength range.
Crafted and highly exclusive, our Single Cask Strength expression of Lambay Single Malt is a super-premium collection of single malt whiskey, rich in aromatic concentration and fully impacted by the sea air.
Wholly finished in cognac casks on Lambay Island , our Master Blender’s has selected this new release for its intense aromatic profile from his most highly prized whiskey casks. A welcome arrival this Spring for budding whiskey collectors, Cask 6688 is the sixth batch , part of Lambay’s private collection. All cognac casks used in the finish of this whiskey have been hand-selected by Lambay’s Cellar Master, and signed per bottle by Yonael Bernard.
“An intense smooth mouthfeel comes from this single malt with the aromas of vanilla, gingerbread, a little bit of pepper followed by fresh grain, smooth spice (cinnamon), and dry fruits,” said Bernard.
Lambay Single Malt is a triple distilled malt whiskey, bourbon barrel matured and finished in cognac casks close to the island’s shoreline housed in the bonded warehouse called the Sea Cask Room. This location on Lambay’s western shoreline offers perfect conditions for maritime cask maturation. Always a few degrees warmer than the mainland and lying on the temperate pathway of the gulf stream makes Lambay the perfect environment for cask maturation.
These cognac casks have been hand-selected for their rich aromatic profiles and concentration and carried across the sea from their homestead – the renowned Cognac House of Camus, France.
Sea-spray, iodine, brine, and the island’s natural botanicals infuse the wood as our single malt matures, while the reaction inside the cask is the whiskey interacting with the rich notes of the once filled cognac.
Cask 6688 is unique for its aromas of gingerbread, vanilla and pepper leaving bitter chocolate, dry fruits , candy and oak on the palette and finishing with a long lasting malt and flora for an outstanding and enjoyable whiskey.
The triple distillation of this single malt and long period of maturation in the cognac cask on Lambay Island makes for a surprising sweet smooth finish especially for this high-strength whiskey at ABV 57%.
This cask is limited to just 446 bottles.
