What I say
A small batch blended Irish whiskey bottled by Lambay Whiskey. From a recent conversation on social media, my understanding is this could essentially comprise of a blend of single malt and single pot still whiskey from the same distillery?
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: White wine gold (6/20),large tears and medium legs.
- Nose: Pear drops and sweetie shops, lemon sherbet, UFO’s, apple strudel, vanilla, buttery, multigrain cereal with honey.
- Taste: Buttery and fatty/oily, sweet wine, reserved fruits, baked/poached apple and pear, honey, toffee, cinnamon, cumin seed, sweet/herbal notes.
- Finish: Drying, sweet oak wood and nutty cashews
A little oily and buttery for my liking on the palate but carries a good sweetness and reasonable diversity of flavours.
Don’t take my word for it:
