    This is sourced whiskey from West Cork! We received just 1cl of the stuff! Is that why it’s called Small Batch? Like the Hinch, this is a high grain, low malt blend with a bourbon base and a “less is more” short cognac cask finishing approach – “a few months at best”. Lambay receives varied casks from Camus [pronounced Camuu], selected by the master at Camus.

    N: I nose a fluffy [Balvenie 12 Double Wodd-fluffy], herbal [marjoram, a hint of fennel seeds, a passing waft of lavender] whiskey, very much grain-led but feeling more mature than the Hinch – though not necessarily for better or for worse.

    T: This reminds me of the discontinued Greenore 8yo [WLP] but with a little more depth [that’ll be the difference from a small malt percentage over 100% grain].
    F: Gentle finish.

    C: Nice enough [£37-42], but a piddly 1cl sample. Way to go Lambey, you festival animals! Colin highlights it too, after Marcus suggests adding [included in our pack] Fever Tree ginger beer to it.

    The Cognac influence drowns the flavour. Wait for a later release.
