Lambay Irish Whiskey Company release New Cask Strength
Lambay Irish Whiskey is proud to announce the release of their fourth Single Cask Strength – Single Malt- Cask 4613 this Spring to their growing whiskey fanbase. Lambay Single Malt is a triple distilled malt whiskey, bourbon cask matured and finished in cognac casks close to the island’s shoreline housed in the bonded warehouse called the Sea Cask Room.
Unique and exclusive, the Single Cask Strength expression of Lambay Whiskey Single Malt is a pure taste of island life and Cask 4613 is the fourth cask release of twenty in this exclusive Premium Cask Program. Limited to just 400 bottles to be released on Lambay’s E-Store ( shop.lambaywhiskey.com) and markets such as Ireland and Europe (FR, ND, BE). RRP €140.
Wholly finished in Camus cognac casks, this collection of single malt cask strength casks lay sleeping on Lambay since 2018. Where seasons have passed and infused these casks with unique maritime notes, all cognac casks used in the finish of this whiskey have been hand-selected for their rich aromatic profile and intense concentration.
The maturation warehouse on Lambay’s western shoreline offers perfect conditions for maritime cask maturation. The island holds a micro-climate of its own, always one or two degrees warmer than the mainland and perfect for cask maturation. Sea-spray, iodine, brine, and the island’s natural botanicals infuse the wood as the Lambay Single Malt matures.
Mr. Jean-David Costerg – Managing Director of LIWC commented:
“We are delighted to present the 4th cask release from this exclusive collection where only 20 casks of this variant will be released to the world and we hope that the market embraces this unique tasting Irish whiskey.”
Each bottle from Cask 4613 is recorded with a batch number on the label along with the rare signature of Lambay’ Master Blender -Yonael Bernard. Presented in a craft wood case with a neck tag, the location and details of the cask are clearly communicated to the customer. At least 7 years old and 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 surprising sweet long-lasting smooth finish, especially for this high strength whiskey.
Sabine Sheehan – Global Brand Ambassador for LIWC commented:
“Cask 4596 was first exclusively released in Dubai Duty Free and Cask 4616 released to our partners -Toko Trading in Japan last year, with another private cask sale to a German buyer this year. Cask 4613 is our pleasure to release to our growing fanbase who are seeking a more intense Lambay Whiskey in their glass.
