Single Malt Reserve Cask Series
This is no ordinary single malt.
Oak, Light Smoke, Herb and Tobacco
Rich mouthfeel with hints of oak and tobacco, developing into spice like black pepper, with salt and very light smoky notes
Rich oak and pepper with lingering herbal notes and salt
Born from independently sourced single malts and created for a discerning whiskey palette, our ambition was to push the boundaries for whiskey fans to taste the diversity of the cask finishes we create in our single malts.
Targeting the whiskey lover who is seeking to leverage up and broaden their tastes, ( and having already experienced our previous single malt whiskey!), this blending style presents a more oak-forward spirit.
Batch 01 was released in May 2022 and limited to just 10,000 bottles.
This new three-part collector’s series called Reserve Cask Series is the innovation of our Master Blender to push the boundaries of oak finishes within our single malt cognac finishing style.
Designed as a triptych gift box collection, the series innovates with the various environmental influences and conditions that impact our casks on Lambay. Batch 02, releases early in 2023 and Batch 03 will follow later.
Taste profiles with three very different limited-edition cask releases. Oak, tobacco, salt, and peat will challenge the traditional sweet, floral and mellow profile we released in 2018 with our first Lambay Single Malt.
When all three boxes are placed together a curated Illustration of the Islands' unique craft story is revealed.
This single malt is bottled at 43% abv, so we recommend sipping straight up and with an added pinch of sea salt.
Serve alongside a slice of your favourite dark chocolate (over 70% cacao) or savour with fresh oysters to enhance the salt and light smoky notes.
Alternatively, adding a small drop of water will effuse the malt and tobacco notes.
Cocktail: Serve as a smoked Rosemary Old-Fashioned with thyme garnish to enhance the herb notes.
