An Island Retreat: Lambay Whiskey

An Island Retreat:  Lambay Whiskey
There's so much to see all over the globe and sometimes we wish we could get see it all.  Do our schedules, finances and responsibilities even permit that?  For most of us the answer is no, but we try our darndest anyway.  For those of us who relish in the idea of sneaking away every week or perhaps even every evening after a hard day, how comforting that we can rely on food & drink, scents and imagery to transport us temporarily to where our passports are unable to at the moment.  With food and drink being the most powerful of the trio, it's always interesting to discover the flavors that are tied to and distinct to a land and its borders making it all the more intriguing.
Some of the best places on earth haven't been heavily disturbed by man and his footprint.  Lambay Island is one of those places.  Lying just a mere three miles off the coast of Dublin, Lambay Island  boasts a diverse ecosystem free from the trampling of an overabundance of people in lieu of the presence of unique wildlife, clean water and foliage kissed by the Irish sea air.  This environ set the perfect tone for the infamous French family, Maison Camus, to add a unique pair of Irish whiskies to their already renowned cognacs.  Alexander Baring, 7th Baron Revelstoke and 5th generation Camus member, Cyril Camus joined forces to take the beauty of Baring's ancestral home and merge it with the spirit-craftsmanship of the Maison Camus and have come up with Lambay Irish Whiskey.  An Island Retreat:  Lambay WhiskeyAn Island Retreat:  Lambay Whiskey
Just as quaint and seasoned as the cycle of life on Lambay are the curation of these whiskies.  There are two varieties, Lambay Whiskey Single Malt and Lambay Whiskey Small Batch Blend.  The Single Malt rests in oak cognac casks shipped from the Maison Camus and are exposed to the maritime winds and oceanic essences bathing Lambay.  The Small Batch Blend, matured in bourbon casks with a cognac cask finish, is truly small batch, not with a big production undertaking, ensuring a full balanced flavor profile for each bottle.  Lambay Island Trinity well water, the unique ocean spray with notes of seaweed, iodine and salt and fresh island botanicals all conspire to give the whiskies a uniquely smooth texture.  The fuller-colored, lower rye content Single Malt lingers with an green fruit herbal & floral sweetness while the triple-distilled Small Batch Blend offers up a lighter-colored nutty, spicy and floral balanced flavor profile. An Island Retreat:  Lambay WhiskeyAn Island Retreat:  Lambay Whiskey
Now I'm not saying that people are bad news, but when I can find puffins, seals, a bevy of seabirds and even wallabies unaffected by the harrowing overabundance of man, I'd be very likely to trust their presence to keep the sanctity of an environ purer than any human.  That is what is characteristic to Lambay Island.  It's purity together with the tradition of humans that respect the land have given birth to a pair of noteworthy Irish whiskies.  It's a true tale of honoring the land so that it gives you its best.  An Island Retreat:  Lambay Whiskey
