Lambay Small Batch Blend

This is a blended Irish whiskey from the Lambay range, named after Lambay Island off the east coast of Ireland (and brought down to bottling strength with water from Lambay, too!). The whiskey is initially aged in bourbon barrels, before enjoying a finishing period in Cognac casks from Camus. Yes, the puffin on the label is wearing a little tuxedo. Yes, we agree, that's adorable.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Porridge with honey and cinnamon, a soft hint of torn orange peel.

Palate Peppery barley and creamy vanilla, mixed with notes of strawberry and peach.

Finish Lingering cassia and chamomile.

Reviews for Lambay Small Batch Blend Irish Whiskey
Not bad
Not bad for the money, reminded me a little of Drambuie but not as sweet obviously

Really nice. Not amazing but worth having in the house.
I'm not going to say it's a 5 star but it's definitely nice! Not harsh on the throat and very smooth with lovely subtle tasting notes. One to be sipped this winter.

Pleasantly surprised !
I recently purchased this new Irish whisky and was pleasantly surprised. I had heard about it's cognac cask finish and was curious to try something different. While they are not a distillery they are blenders and seem to understand the whole art of blending very well using french oak casks. My palate was pleased! Bourbon cask matured and then finished in the cognac cask gave a unique taste profile indeed.
Floral notes , super smooth , cracked pepper and some hints of vanilla and honey its perfect for those that prefer a lighter , softer whisky neat.

Slightly disappointing
I bought this as I normally enjoy Irish whiskey, but of late I'm tending to drink a lot more Scottish single malts and have been exploring distilleries not normally found in the supermarket (courtesy of MoM). So my tastes may be changing and have influence on this review?

Apparently produced by West Cork Distillers and the gimmick is it's finished in French Cognac casks from CAMUS on the private island of Lambay. This collaboration is the idea of the Baring family who own Lambay island, situated off the coast of Dublin. The casks are shipped over in small batches for a month of maturation before bottling with Lambay Island ‘Trinity well water’. However, I'm unsure if this applies to this blend or just the single malt they produce. It’s certainly unique, but to me the brand is a bit of a gimmick and I'm yet to try their single malt.

It's triple distilled, non chill filtered and a pale straw colour, so may not be coloured either, but this isn’t stated on the bottle. On the nose it's very fruity and fresh smelling, with citrus notes that remind me of Southern Comfort - it's clearly young. Taste wise it's too sweet for my palate, a bit syrupy and floral. The cognac notes are there, but not very forward. It tastes muddled to me and not like any Irish whiskey I've had before.

It’s certainly not bad, but I wouldn’t buy it again. However, I do think it would be especially good for cocktails, due to it’s very fresh and fruity character. An interesting experiment especially if you enjoy Irish whiskey, but there’s a lot better out there near this price point IMO (Redbreast 12 or Green Spot for example). For me it’s a sub £30.00 whiskey, so a bit overpriced for a NAS blend.

Most interesting discovery from 2018
It's one of the best discoveries for me this year. It's got the maritime saltiness of Old Pulteney, the floral and fruity notes of Speyside, smoothness of Irish triple distilled spirits and most of all a very unique and interesting flavour profile from the cognac casks. This whiskey is not hard hitting and outspoken as many other Scotch whiskeys out there. It's a very good all round whiskey for enjoying in a company of whiskey newbies, because just like a good detective novel, the flavour is full of unexpected twists and turns that makes it very interesting. It goes very well with very dark chocolate and a cigar. Definitely well priced and worth a try.
