Introducing Cask 7494, Batch 05 is a limited edition triple-distilled single malt, bourbon barrel matured and finished in hand-selected cognac casks in our Sea Cask Room on Lambay. This cask strength wholly influenced by the sea, reflects the exceptional cognac influence and finishing skills of our Master Blender.
Enjoy tropical aromas with notes of cinnamon, dried fruits & gingerbread, finishing with long-lasting spice and bitter cacao. Cask 7494 is the seventh cask release, part of Lambay’s private single malt cask strength collection. All cognac casks used in the finish of this whiskey have been hand-selected by Lambay’s Cellar Master, Yonael Bernard.
HISTORY OF THE CASK:
Once located in the middle-lower tier of our Sea Cask Room Nr. 1, Cask 7494 was set close to the southeast wall which touches the seashore on Lambay Island. Less exposed to the direct sea climate, the taste of this Single Malt Irish whiskey is a direct result of the exceptional previous cognac influence and the perfect blending skills of our Master Blender. It is characterised by exceptional smoothness attributed to the unique humidity of its environment on Lambay.
