Lambay Single Malt 20 Year Old Castle Prestige Edition is the first age-statement triple distilled single malt in the Lambay family.
This superior aged distillate has been delicately sourced from a leading Irish distiller for this project specifically, Noel Sweeney (ex-Master Distiller Cooley / Powerscourt Distillery), a bold single malt was sourced that could take Lambay's unique finishing style. Carefully aged in bourbon barrels for 18 years, before being finished in French oak Camus Cognac casks on Lambay for the final 2 years under the watchful eye of their Master Blender, Yonael Bernard.
Lambay Whiskey brings together the indulgent flair of cognac, one of the richest French Eaux-de-Vie and oak barrels, renowned for what they impart to liquid. The resulting liquid is endlessly elegant – resonant, fruity, at times woody, and with toasted notes and a whisper of spice.
Lambay’s air is rich in sea salt and unique pollen. It’s this beautiful atmospheric interaction that passes through the casks resting on the island. It has an oxidizing effect, albeit on island time, but it eventually shapes the liquid with notes of the local terroir: island botanicals, environmental compounds, and an inimitable maritime brine note.
A limited release of 8,000 bottles.
Nose: Warm vanilla, smooth oak, mature plums, green apples, hints of Iodine, and lingering rancio. Aromatic yet gentle and pleasant, the maritime influence of salt and iodine is present, with rich vanilla, rancio, and a hint of spice and green fruits.
Palate: Exotic spices such as Saffron, Ginger, and pepper, with sweet pastry-like notes of almond, honey, and nuts (walnuts). A whiskey that reflects our true maritime influence, iodine, and salt with a smooth and pleasant full mouthfeel. Plum & Apple fruit is well balanced with this cognac-cask finish, lingering spice notes of ginger create a long finish of green fruits & spice.
Finish: Explosive long-lasting rancio fruit balanced with salt, pepper, and an elegant smooth lingering long finish. Long-lasting sweetness with a good balance of oak and salt, a lingering mouthfeel yet elegant in the finish with hints of honey and ginger.
